Spinny Mountain Reservoir

Spinney Reservoir is one of the best stillwater fisheries in the state. It has a Gold Water rating, and each season, anglers from all over the state line up at the entrance a half hour before sunrise to enter this gem. Rainbows measure well over 20 inches as a result of their main diet consisting of scuds, leeches and crawfish. These entrees are available to the fish year-round. The best mayfly and midge hatches occur in May and June. Floating tubing is the best way to get around the lake; anglers bringing a boat make sure to clean it thoroughly because they are now inspecting for Zebra Muscles.
