Spinney Mountain Reservoir
Opening day at Spinney should fall near the middle of April, depending on weather. Rainbow trout fishing will be great. Brown trout fishing will remain spotty. Northern pike fishing will remain good for smaller pike and slow for larger pike. Anglers are encouraged to harvest all northern pike caught at Spinney Mountain Reservoir. Keep in mind that this is an early projection but, the north boat ramp should be in operation for opening day.
If already in South park, check out this Gold Medal Stillwater location. Yes there are waaaay to many crowds for me, but if you're lucky enough you could score the fish of a lifetime here.
Our Trips and Info
North Park is fortunate to have numerous stillwater fishing opportunities ranging in size from several hundred acres to small ponds. Most of these lakes are teeming with insects such as damselflies, callibaetis, and chironomids. Scuds, the fresh water shrimp found in our lakes, are a major part of every fish's diet in these lakes, helping to grow the trophy fish we all dream of catching. Such food sources result in thick, well-fed trout that readily eat flies, fight hard, and make fly anglers grin ear-to-ear. Delaney Buttes through and through is up there as one of my favorite places bar none and my former fishing pal Zeke before he passed loved every minute spent there!
Biggest fish but the hardest to catch here. Brown and Rianbow trout are found here
Most popular of the three, rainbows a few browns and most important, snake river cutty's found here. Fun place to fish and relax, just expect wind!
