About the river

The South Platte River is located a little over an hours drive east of Salida. The ‘Dream Stream’ section in between Spinney and Eleven Mile Reservoirs is known for it’s large migratory trout entering the river from Eleven Mile Reservoir in the spring and fall. Large number of Kokanee Salmon also move into the river in the fall. As the Kokanee begin to spawn, sight fishing to large trout feeding on their eggs is the name of the game. This tail water is not an easy fishery by any means but can be extremely rewarding for the persistent angler.
