With tremendous populations of impressively sized fish and crystal clear waters surrounded by a dynamic, breathtaking landscape; the Colorado's South Platte river is widely regarded as the state's premier fishery, as well as one of the premier fisheries in the country. The South Platte, en route to Denver, flows through a number of lakes and reservoirs, dividing the river into distinct sections. The collection below, by Angus Drummond, offers a look at the many faces of the South Platte River.
