Fly Fishing Report for Spinney Reservoir

Spinney Reservoir Fishing Report  

 

Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

Weed bed growth is beginning to come along, so Callibaetis activity shouldn't be too far away. Recently, however fishing has been very dependent on Chironomid activity. If Chironomid hatch activity hasn't been at least moderate, fishing has ben tough...however we've had some phenomenal days as of late. Fish have been moving a lot but are starting to be found more regularly around weed bed growth.

 

Lake Conditions

 The reservoir is low, and clarity is good.

Lake Level: 51351 Acre Ft (Full)

Clarity: Clear 

Suggested Methods

 Its been a Chironomid focus, deep for the most part. Our guides have been most successful running double Chironomid Rigs at 18-20ft. We have been mixing in some leech patterns as well as smaller midges on days that the Chironomid activity hasn't been heavy. Callibaetis activity isn't far away...

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

Fish on both Spinney and Antero are beginning to spread out looking for food.  Weed beds are young so don't expect big concentrations of fish until a couple of weeks of growth occurs.  Olive Chironomids are the ticket along with dark leech patterns. Overall, fishing has been a bit more productive on Spinney in the late Spring time frame.
