The South Platte River [Middle Fork], Alma to Elevenmile Canyon Reservoir Fishing & River Map Guide is designed to be the perfect companion to anyone recreating on the upper reaches of the Middle Fork of the South Platte. In the upper reaches of the South Platte basin, the Middle and South Fork (above Antero) are classic freestone streams (with beaver ponds) that are consistently inconsistent with regard to flow, water temperature, clarity, hatches, and many other variables such as freezing up during the winter months. In comparison, the tailraces (i.e. below Antero and Spinney Mountain Reservoir) are much more predictable, providing anglers with a consistent year-round fishery. This Fishing & River Map Guide includes the area between Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile Reservoirs known as the "Dream Stream", known for producing some of the biggest trout in the country.
Each Fishing & River Map Guide includes detailed river maps at a scale of 1 inch = 1/2 mile. At this scale every turn in the river and rapid is clearly shown and labeled. Each page is centered on the river and overlaps with the adjacent pages so finding any location along the river is easy. The maps include river miles, access points, private and public lands, gaging stations, recreation sites, and more.
