Andrew P, a shop client, shows off his first ever fly caught carp from the Denver South Platte River in May

People ask me all the time: “What is a good time to fish the South Platte River in Denver for carp?”  My first answer: “It depends a lot on the flows.”

The fishing on the main stem of the South Platte River continues to be excellent with flows right in line with historic averages.  On one of our recent guide trips we started fairly early and we were on the water before 8:00am.  The water was clear and the Stream Flow was at 288 CFS.  We had clear skies and the river was pleasantly un-crowded. We began fishing just downstream of Deckers and found a few feeding rainbows right out of the gate.

As spring further asserts herself, these fisheries will only continue to improve, and conveniently provided some excellent alternatives to the increasingly turbid, runoff trout waters. This Late April we have had some excellent fishing across the front range, from the south eastern extreme of the state, to the very immediate metro area, a we only expect it to get better......

Fly Fishing Report: Spring Conditions On The South Platte River

Author: Will Rice

The main stem of the South Platte River continues to fish well as we push into spring and the flows continue to rise.  Higher flows are dislodging a lot of debris, bugs and other organisms into the river and the water also has a nice stained color and fish are actively feeding throughout the day.
