The South Platte River below Spinney Mountain Reservoir is one of the most famous tailwater fisheries in North America. Located about 2 hours southwest of Denver and 40 minutes North of Royal Gorge Anglers, in the area known as South Park, this relatively short meadow stretch of the Platte is a year-round fishery and produces some of the largest trout in the state during annual spring (Rainbow and Cutthroat trout) and fall (Brown trout and Kokanee Salmon) spawning runs out of Elevenmile Reservoir, some into the mid two digits weight wise. The resident fish are no joke either, consistently reaching sizes over 18 inches. This is an amazing stretch to fish! Royal Gorge Anglers also guides on several stretches above Spinney Reservoir including the Spinney Mile (Spinney Mountain Ranch) and Tomahawk State Wildlife Areas which offer more of the same oxbow style stream settings and a variety of trout species. These fantastic trips in South Park are only made better by over 30 years of guiding experience on each given stretch. Let Royal Gorge Anglers guides show you the ropes with a great guided fly fishing trip on the South Platte River!
