In June 2010, the "Dream Stream" portion of Spinney Mountain SWA between Spinny and Elevenmile Reservoirs was renamed for Charlie Meyers, the longtime outdoor columnist for the Denver Post


The river segment has become one of the most popular destinations in Colorado for anglers seeking a quality fishing experience.

It offers excellent opportunities to catch exceptionally large rainbow trout from Elevenmile Reservoir that enter the river in the spring, and brown trout that move in during the fall. It also supports a good population of resident trout and features excellent hatches of aquatic insects..”
