Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

Fishing has been good in South Park! The North Shore ramp will be the only option for boaters at this point in time. We're seeing a lot of cruising fish right now, foraging along the edges for food...and this will be the case until substantial weed-bed growth occurs in the lake as water temps rise in mid to late June. This can be an excellent opportunity for wade anglers and float-tubers alike, as many fish will be well within reach of the shore. For the tubers, bring layers...water temps will be cold!

 

Lake Conditions

Lake is approx 80% full

 

Clarity: Tinted to Dirty at times due to wind

 

Suggested Methods

In early summer it's a game of covering water and being prepared at various depths with various attractors, scuds and chironomids, and now transitioning into callibaetis. Carrying multiple rods will be key, as we recommend both static indicator rigging and intermediate/ sink tip style setups for retrieving leeches and attractors. Pattern wise, your focus will be on egg patterns, scuds, chironomids, callibaetis, leeches, and other attractor style streamers. Check out our "Stillwater Tactics" video above for in-depth details!

 

 

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

Antero is OPEN 365, but ramps are now open to boating! We typically see a lot of cruising fish in the first few weeks, foraging along the edges for food...until substantial weed-bed growth occurs in the lake, and that weed bed growth is starting! This can be an excellent opportunity for wade anglers and float-tubers alike, as many fish will be well within reach of the shore. For the tubers, bring layers...water temps will be cold!
