Homage to Charlie Meyers

PARK COUNTY — Shortly after the untimely passing of venerable sportsman and Denver Post Outdoors reporter/editor Charlie Meyers in January 2010, a couple of other noteworthy events took place.


That March, the Colorado Wildlife Commission unanimously decided to dedicate the so-called “Dream Stream” section of the South Platte River between Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile reservoirs in his honor, renaming it the Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area.A month later, Charlie’s final offering to the outdoor world, “The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing,” co-authored by fellow Colorado fishing scribe Kirk Deeter, was  released posthumously by Skyhorse Publishing.

The Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area was established alongside the “Dream Stream” section of the South Platte River in 2010 as a tribute to the late Denver Post outdoors editor. (Scott Willoughby, The Denver Post)
