From the publisher: 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—such as the ones below Antero and Spinney Mountain Reservoir—are much more predictable, providing anglers with a consistent year-round fishery.

The area between Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile Reservoirs, called the "Dream Stream," is known for producing some of the biggest trout in the country.
