I will say we caught more big trout out of spinney 20 years ago. But fishing pressure was different then as was the "new lake effect".

Back in the 80's when Spin open it was full of big cutthroat trout. 5-10lb cutts were common especially the first couple weeks after iceoff. Guess that's when Spinney got it's reputation and opening day madness. When the cutts expired DOW stocked rainbows and now the whirling desease free Hoffer rainbow.
The Hoffers grow fast but seldom over 22-23in. If you hook a 25"+ it prolly came as a Antero transplant when they drained that.
Do miss the early days but with a 20"average today on dryflys can't complain.

Default Antero Tigers and trout.

I understand that Tigers have been put in the lake for sucker control. As most of you are aware, Tigers are sterile so the Musky situation at both 11 Mile and Spinney Mountain will not occur.

(Reproduction. Cross-breeding of the true muskellunge and the northern pike occurs naturally in the wild where both parent species occur. The tiger muskie is sterile, which is not unusual for a hybrid fish. ... Tiger muskie usually grow more quickly than the pure-strain muskie and northern pike in the first several years.)

The lake currently has 15' of water and hopefully will be raised to 18' with the Spring runoff. Based on information on the Denver Water website it would be possible we'll see the lake opened back up sometime in 2017.

It will be nice having a third option in South Park this summer.

Bill
