Eleven Mile Canyon

06/12/2020 - 06/14/2020

Description: CWF is headed back to one of our faves in a beautiful location! Eleven Mile Canyon is an outstanding tailwater fishery that holds nice brown and rainbow trout. The South Platte River flows from Eleven Mile Reservoir into Eleven Mile Canyon. The top two miles of Eleven Mile Canyon are Gold Medals catch-and-release water. This part of Eleven Mile Canyon holds the greatest concentration and quality of trout, although there are lots of fish throughout the entire canyon.
