Spinney Mountain Reservoir opens after ice-out usually sometime around mid to late April. The lake is classified as Gold Medal water and may be fished with artificial flies and lures only. The lake is heavily populated with rainbows, cutthroats, browns and northern pike. Boating is allowed at Spinney but no water contact sports including water-skiing, wading, or swimming are permitted. Several day use areas inhabit this park but there are no campgrounds - nearby Elevenmile has plenty of camping if you are in the area. Hunting is also popular as Spinney attracts numerous waterfowl species.
