Spinney Mountain Reservoir can be as about as good as it gets for the still water angler.  The conditions in Spinney Res. are perfect for producing and maintaining a healthy population of large trout (we are measuring in pounds here, not inches).  Spinney can be accessed by foot, or by water craft.  Wade fisherman and float tubers usually target inlet areas, the dam, and shallow bays.  Motorized crafts, and drift boats often work deeper channels.  Static nymphing and streamer stripping are the common fly fishing techniques employed here.  Scuds, Annelids, Chironomids, Damsel Flies, Callibaetis, crayfish, baitfish, and smaller trout are staple food sources of Spinney Res.
