Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

Reports continue to be very good on Spinney from shore or in a boat/ tube. We're starting to see alot of strong Chironomid and Caddis hatches on all of the South Park Reservoirs, and we've even seen a few Callibaetis. Buffalo Bay continues to be a fan favorite area, however more fish are being found over weed growth directly off the bathrooms in the middle of the lake. We're moving into the primetime fishing on these lakes as far as bug activity is concerned...be sure to get some dates on your calendar to go enjoy! *Motorized vessels are allowed to launch at the North Ramp ONLY.

 

Lake Conditions

Lake is approx 68% full

 

Clarity: Clear 

 

Suggested Methods

Focus on the bug lifecycles as you would anywhere else. Chironomids, Caddis, and Callibaetis are all key players on a static indicator rig...and as always the major key to success is to figure out the correct depth (which has been 9-12 ft, but can be variable). Our guides continue to take fish on damsel or leech style imitations on a slow strip using intermediate or full sink lines. Carrying multiple rods with various rigs will catch you more fish for certain, and be sure to fish fluorocarbon in the 3-4x range, as these fish are big and HOT.

 

 

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

We're starting to see alot of strong Chironomid and Caddis hatches on all of the South Park Reservoirs, and we've even seen a few Callibaetis. The islands continue to be great producers for our guides, and we'll begin to see more fish over the weed bed growth as Callibaetis lifecycle activity continues to build. Get out and have fun!
