Fishing Spinney Reservoir

​​​World class Gold Medal trout fishing awaits beneath the waters of Spinney Reservoir.

For gold medal fishing, it’d be hard to find any better than Spinney Mountain Reservoir. Anglers can find shoreline or fly fishing, belly boating or trolling opportunities in a peaceful and scenic setting. Check the Conditions​ page for current fishing conditions. See the park map for more details.

This isolated retreat is ideal for visitors seeking beautiful views of the Collegiate Mountain Range or just a little solitude from busy city life. Birders have plenty to see between the ducks, waders and birds of prey. Boating enthusiasts can enjoy the 2,500 surface-acre reservoir with two boat ramps that are available depending upon water levels.

In order to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species - particularly zebra and quagga mussels - mandatory inspections of all trailered vessels are now being conducted at the entrance station and must be completed satisfactorily prior to launching on the reservoir. See the boating​ and fishing​ pages for further information.


Dates of Operation 

​Spinney is open seasonally. The park is open, subject to change, from ice-off to ice-on. Typically this is about April 15th to November 15th annually. ​​
