Post writer has stream dedicated to him

FAIRPLAY -The Colorado Division of Wildlife will dedicate the “Dream Stream” portion of Spinney Mountain State Wildlife Area in Park County to Charlie Meyers, longtime outdoor writer for the Denver Post, who passed away in January.

The dedication takes place at 10:30 a.m. Saturday along the South Platte River at Park County Road 59 south of US Highway 24 via Park County Road 23.

The Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area is home to one of the most renowned trout fishing destinations in the country.

“It is fitting that this spectacular property was chosen by the Wildlife Commission to honor Charlie,” said Tom Remington, director of the Colorado Division of Wildlife. “Charlie was a champion for sportsmen and the wildlife resources we all cherish. We look forward to commemorating all he accomplished for hunters and anglers, and the marvelous way he told their stories.”

The dedication will feature several of Charlie’s friends, family and Division of Wildlife staff members speaking about Charlie’s life and what made him an icon in the sporting community.

To get to the Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area from Denver, take I-70 west, merge onto C-470 east via exit 260 toward Colorado Springs (5.7 miles). Merge onto US-285 south toward Fairplay (68.3 miles). Take a slight left onto CO-9 (16.2 miles). Turn left onto US-24/CO-9 (1 mile).
