Fly Fishing For Carp: Stillwater Edition

By: Jun 09, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
It looks like many rivers in central Colorado might have reached their peak flows last week and have now begun to descend.  When flows are high, it is a great time to explore stillwater fisheries. Two weeks ago we talked a bit about fly fishing for carp in Denver’s South Platte River, this week we have a photo essay from some of our recent stillwater adventures.

Fishing the South Platte River over the past week and a half has been dynamic.  This past Saturday, we saw a significant increase in flows during our On-Stream Beginner Fly Fishing School.  The river was high when we arrived and we saw it increase throughout the day.

I felt a certain level of superiority as I sat on the plane awaiting takeoff.  Maybe it was due to the fact I was sitting in first class (a benefit of waiting until the last minute to book your flight, when the price difference between coach and first class is $100), or perhaps is was the fact that I was headed for a 5 day run of tarpon fishing out of Key West.  Ah yes, this is most likely the culprit of my current state of mind.  Looking around the plane, I feel...
