The Denver chapter of Trout Unlimited chose downtown Denver as the location of their new carp fly fishing tournament next weekend. Why? Because the South Platte as it flows through the city is one of the best places to go to stalk these difficult fish. “The best time to fish flat water is in spring, just before and immediately after spawning. They spend much of the day in the cool shallows, where they root and tail like bonefish. Midsummer heat sends carp to deep water, no longer available for sight fishing except very early and late in the day. But they’re always ready in the river, where the only variable is flow.” Charlie Meyers in the Denver Post.
