Four days of Fall fishing the stretch of the South Platte River that flows between Spinney and Eleven Mile Reservoir, in the Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area more commonly known as the Dream Stream.
In this video I took a chance and went fishing when bad weather was in the forecast. Turned out to be an excellent day of fishing the South Platte River in the Charlie Meyers Wildlife Area, more commonly know as The Dream Stream.
This stretch of the South Platte River spans from the dam at Spinney Mountain Reservoir to the inlet of Eleven Mile Reservoir. The river holds a multitude of fish species to include rainbow, cutthroat, cuttbow, and brown trout. It also serves as the spawning ground for the kokanee salmon that live in Eleven Mile Reservoir.
This state land area is open to the public but is limited to anglers using artificial flies and lures only and the entire stretch is a catch and release fishery for all fish species!
The Colorado weather can be unpredictable and the gale force winds that haunt this open prairie can challenge even the most seasoned angler. Check the forecast before heading out and dress appropriately. Good luck anglers.
