Front Range Rivers & Streams

Minturn Anglers offers a wide variety of fly fishing experiences. The rivers we fish include some of the most highly rated and sought after fishing destinations, as well as those less well known but equally as productive. Dependent on conditions, and time of year, our rivers can be floated or waded and customized to your individual requirements. While there are a wide-range of trip options, the one constant is spending a day in a spectacular outdoor environment, catching wild mountain trout.

Deckers, South Platte

The Deckers section of the South Platte River is a fantastic tailwater fishery year-round. The 8 miles of deep pools, pocket water and riffles will challenge even the most accomplished anglers. Thanks to the Cheesman Reservoir with its bottom release, this tailwater is temperate all year around. Deckers is also just a few minutes from Denver, CO.

Dream Stream

Close to Denver, the Dream Stream is a six-mile section of the South Platte River nestled in between Spinney Mountain and Eleven Mile reservoirs. Anglers flock to this  river in the Spring and Fall in hopes of catching one of the famed “migration” runs of big lake run trout prepping for their annual spawn. Anglers should note that it is strongly advised to please respect the spawning trout and only target those fish off of their reds and actively feeding.
