Holy Water on the South Platte
It has always been a great piece of water. It’s especially known for its Trico hatches and runs for big rainbows in the spring. It has been renamed the Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area after my old friend who wrote for the Denver Post, but to most it is still the “Dream Stream.” It’s the section of Colorado’s South Platte between Spinny and 11-Mile Reservoirs. Jason and I filmed a portion of “Fishing the Midge” on this section of water, and we’ve fished it several other times, always with great anticipation that has not been disappointed.
Timm Tews sent me a photo of his friend, Doug Martin, with a lovely spring-run rainbow, up from 11-Mile looking for spawning gravels. No doubts now, about why it’s called the dream stream
