Fly Fishing For Carp: Stillwater Edition

By: Jun 09, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
When flows are high, it is a great time to explore stillwater fisheries.  Close to home here in Denver we are pretty lucky and have a number of close by lakes, reservoirs, and smaller ponds.  In addition to a wide variety of species like pike, small and largemouth bass, and wipers, many of these fisheries are chock full of carp.   The most prevalent species is the common carp but you will also find mirror and grass carp as well.  Two weeks ago we talked a bit about fly...

South Platte Fly Fishing Report: June

By: Jun 05, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
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. The flows near Deckers actually quadrupled over a 24-hour period.  Even with rising water levels, the fishing was still good. During our class we stressed that weight with our students. Using weight to ensure your...

Out of Office Reply - a kick off to my Key West adventure

By: May 31, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
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 certain that...
