Coyote Ridge through North Shore, especially Rocky Flats, Suckers Cove, Lazy Boy, and Witchers Cove are all seeing good action. Salmon fishing is slow. Pike is fair. Dream Stream is good. Large fish are being caught using midges and Barr's emergers.
Spinney Mountain State Park (Park County) - Trout fishing is good. Fishermen are reporting the most success in the deep waters. Good catches are being seen in the inlets and closer to the dam. Pike fishing is also good. Try using spoons, stickbaits or tube jigs. The best reports are coming from those fishing 100 to 150 meters from the shoreline.

From boats, both trolling and casting while drift fishing were successful."

A few pike were picked up along on Horseshoe along the dam and a few bass as well. Martin has seen an increase in fishing pressure, with a few having luck toward the dam side.
