CDOW looks to rename Dream Stream after Charlie Meyers

Matt’s Rant: As a fellow outdoors writer and enthusiast I respect Charlie Meyers work immensely. His articles for the Denver Post were a weekly stopping point on my internet fishing research. Charlie’s shoes will be hard to fill for the Denver Post and the entire state has lost a true champion for sportsman as well as great storyteller of outdoor adventures.

The Division Of Wildlife is looking at one way to remember Charlie Meyers by renaming one of Colorado’s most prestigious Gold Medal trout fishing streams. The famed “Dream Stream” section of the South Platte between Spinney Mountain Reservoir and 11-Mile may become “Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area”.

(Above: An aerial shot of the section being discussed. This may in fact be one of the top trout fishing destinations in the state and acclaimed in such magazines as Field and Stream.)

The so-called Dream Stream on the South Platte River could be renamed "Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area," according to a recommendation announced by the Division of Wildlife this week.

The Colorado Wildlife Commission will take up the proposal at its monthly meeting Thursday in Denver. The area runs between Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile reservoirs.

Charlie Meyers was the outdoors writer at The Denver Post and worked at The Post for more than 40 years. Meyers died Jan. 5 after a two-year battle with lung cancer.

"You would not believe the number of people who inquired about if we were going to do something to honor Charlie," said DOW director Tom Remington, who added that the proposal could be ready for final adoption by the end of March.
A date for a formal dedication will be announced if it clears the commission.
