|The Dream Stream part of the South Platte River in Colorado:
With a nickname like the Dream Stream, you know it has potential. Also known as Spinney Mountain Ranch, this three mile long
Colorado tailwater section of the South Platte River is nestled in the windswept high mountain plain of South Park. Flowing out
of Spinney Mountain Reservoir, meandering through prime big trout habitat, the river eventually flows into Eleven Mile Reservoir.
A classic Colorado tailwater, the fish and aquatic life in the Dream Stream enjoy fairly consistent year round temperatures. An
abundance of scuds, midges, mayflys, and caddisflys make up the majority of the trout's diet. These trout will also feed on
hoppers, trout fry, eggs, and even mice if the opportunity presents itself--not to mention all the food washed out of Spinney
The Dream Stream portion of The South Platte River is public, and has easy bank access making this section a very popular
destination for Colorado fly fisherman. These trout that can grow to gargantuan proportions have learned how to avoid
detection and humble even the most skilled anglers. That is not to say that they can't be caught . . .
Although unpredictable wind and weather combined with sometimes fussy fish scare many an angler away from The Dream
Stream, the dedicated fly fisherman can experience some of the best days of trout fishing imaginable, catching multiple Spinney
Mountain Ranch trophies in a single day!!!!
Let one of our guides show you how to hunt these elusive Colorado monsters!!!!!
