South Platte River - Middle Fork - Tomahawk

Fetching Current Flow

TomahawkTomahawk is the middle fork of the South Platte River. This stretch of the river is a great place to find solitude from the crowds. Summer and fall are a great time of the year to throw big hoppers to eager brown trout. In the summer, bring insect repellent because the mosquitos can get bad. In the fall, bring heavy leaders because large browns come out of their typical hiding spaces and up river from Spinney to spawn.
