Spinney Reservoir Description

Spinney Reservoir has become one of the premier still water locations in the Rocky Mountains. Not only trophy fish into the double digit range can be possible, but also a higher average size range than any other reservoir in the state. Nestled in the heart of South Park this Gold Medal fishery not only has extremely productive trout fishing but also some of the best views of the beautiful Collegiate Peaks Range.
