The winding, treeless, meadow portion of the South Platte River between Spinney and Elevenmile Reservoirs is known as the Dream Stream.

The scenery includes Pikes Peak to the east, lush grass and farmland to the north and south, and many majestic 14,000 foot peaks to the west. There are several well known hatches including in mid-May the PMD hatch, the terrestrials after three p.m. on the hottest of summer days and, in October, early morning and late night wooly buggers helping to land big brown trout and kokanee salmon.

One of the most sought after hatch on this stretch of water is the Trico hatch in mid-July when a #24 Black Spinner looks like a giant next to the natural bugs found in large clumps in the water. Pat Dorsey’s stream report states “spring and fall spawning runs from Elevenmile Reservoir are quite impressive with fish up to 12 pounds landed during a key three-four week period”. Ideal flow conditions for the Dream Stream are between 100 cfs and 250 cfs.

Regulations are flies and lures only. All fish must be returned to the water immediately. >br>
