Don’t forget “The Dream Stream” AKA “The Miracle Mile”
Colorado is home to thousands of miles of spectacular rivers that snake through jagged canyons, open meadows, and towering peaks, making it hard to pick the best fly-fishing spot in the state. Boasting some of the most abundant fishing across the country, Colorado is a fisherman’s dream. While it can be hard to single out the best fishing spot in the state, one thing most anglers agree upon is how spectacular the fishing is on a three-mile stretch river on the South Platte known as the Dream Stream and Miracle Mile.
The South Platte River is one of the most productive rivers to fish in the entire United States and the section between Spinney Reservoir and Elevenmile Canyon Reservoir is boasts a gold medal rating. This designation is given by the Colorado Wildlife Commission, meaning it’s one of the best places to fish in the whole state. In order to receive this recognition, a section of the river must be able to produce 60 pounds of trout per acre, and at least twelve 1 inch or larger trout per acre. This title isn’t given to just any river either, only 322 miles of Colorado’s 8000+ miles of streams carry the “Gold Medal” signature.
This amazing stretch of the South Platte River contains some of the state’s largest rainbow, cutthroat, cuttbow, and brown trout, along with a fair share of kokanee salmon. Sitting between two of the state’s larger reservoirs helps these fish flourish year after year in the heart of Colorado. This location provides a plethora of opportunities to catch a record-breaking fish in one of Colorado’s most beautiful settings.
This beautiful stretch of Gold Medal waters snakes its way through grassy meadows and is fairly easy to navigate on your own. The “Dream Stream” has public access from all sides, making it easy to find a section of the river all to yourself. While this river gets more crowds than most due to its location on the front range, there is luckily ample space across this three-mile stretch to enjoy nature on your own. The abundance of wildlife and panoramic views found in this section of the South Platte create an awe-inspiring backdrop, anglers only dream of.

Luckily for you, this area of Colorado has some amazing properties for sale right outside this spectacular section of water.
