Lakes & Reservoirs (Short Drive)
The DOW, the (Colorado Division of Wildlife) classified certain fishing spots as “World Class”, “Gold Medal” and “Wild Trout Waters“.
Cheeseman Canyon and Deckers have stretches of river that are well known as famous to Colorado fishermen; with a tailwater and 3.8 miles of water above Eleven Mile (16 mi away) reservoir that are a great place for trout to live and breed. This river also turns out to be a Gold Medal water with the nickname of the “Dream Stream”. It’s the section of the South Platte River between Spinney (32 mi away) and Elevenmile Reservoirs in South Park, also known as Spinney Mountain State Wildlife Area. In 2010, the State Wildlife Area (SWA) was renamed Charlie Meyers SWA, in honor of the well-known deceased Denver Post Outdoor writer.
Sportsmen’s Paradise – Rivers & Ponds
Some of the best fishing on this stretch of the South Platte River are in the ripples above and below the oxbow bend directly in front of the house. The lot is perched on the side of this beautiful river valley coated with mature ponderosa pines and best of all, it is completely surrounded by the Pike National Forest. There are 140 Acres of private Sportsmen Paradise fishing club property that surround on both sides a two mile stretch of the South Platte River fed by Lake George and joined by Vermillion Creek and Crystal Creeks on the fishing club property. There is one small private pond, and then six other ponds on the fishing club property; Upper and Lower Crystal ponds, Vermillion, Workman’s, Kid’s Pond and Paradise pond which is the largest, located and located on the west of the Platte river. Each of these bodies of water contain good quantities of Brown trout, Brook Trout and are stocked with Rainbow Trout four times each year.
