South Platte River - Below Spinney Reservoir

Fetching Current Flow

 Dream Stream

The South Platte River below Spinney Reservoir is known to most local anglers as the "Dream Stream". This tailwater doesn't have many holds over fish and is subject to high wind speeds and inclement weather. The spring and fall have been the Dream Stream's saving grace because of the spawns. Large rainbows and cutthroat trout move into the river in the spring, and Large browns and kokanee salmon move in in the fall. There is no camping available next to the river, however there are several great campgrounds downstream along Elevenmile Reservoir. There is a $7 parks pass fee to park in the last lot below Spinney.
