Fly Fishing Report for Spinney Reservoir

Spinney Reservoir Fishing Report  

 

Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

**Spinney Mtn Reservoir will close on November 30th. Our reports will resume at ice off in 2019.

 

Lake Conditions

 The reservoir is almost full, and clarity is good.

Lake Level: 39507 Acre Ft (70%)

Clarity: Clear 

Suggested Methods

 There are many fish on weed beds still, but the further we move into the Fall, the more we will see fish foraging. Our guides rig one rod with a static indicator rig, and the other with and intermediate sink head/ line. Your static indicator rig should focus on Chironomids, Damselflies and Callibaetis nymphs. If you run a second rod with a short sink tip or intermediate head, it is best to use small leech patterns in a dark red or olive coloration or a damsel imitation on a quick twitch. 

  

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

As we've seen on Spinney, cooling water temps have affected bug activity negatively and made the fishing more inconsistent. Still, some great days can be had on Antero. Focus more on the Damsel lifecycle along with streamers. 

 

Lake Conditions

 The Lake is 3/4 capacity and clarity is good. 

Lake Level: 70%

Clarity: Clear 

Suggested Methods

Most of the fish will be found foraging in groups near the weed beds, however fish can be found cruising all over the lake. Our guides rig one rod with a static indicator rig, and the other with and intermediate sink head/ line. Your static indicator rig should focus on Chironomids, Damselflies and Callibaetis nymphs. If you run a second rod with a short sink tip or intermediate head, it is best to use small leech patterns in a dark red or olive coloration or a damsel imitation on a quick twitch.
