Fly FIshing Denver’s South Platte River

June 19, 2013

Here is another great article about fly fishing and the Denver South Platte River.  This piece was written by Ricardo Baca and published yesterday in the Denver Post.  John Davenport and Ronnie Crawford who are featured in the in the article and photo essay are both members of Denver Trout Unlimited.  Here’s a sound bite from Carp Slam veteran Luke Bever:

"Some of these places aren't the most serene places to fish, but I can go six minutes from my house to the Platte and catch a 20-pound fish,"said Luke Bever, a Denver-rooted fishing guide who primarily works the South Plate area near Deckers, 90 minutes southwest of Denver. "Down in Deckers, we're fishing for trout primarily. But in the city I've caught everything from walleye and catfish to largemouth and smallmouth bass."

If you still have any doubts about the potential of the Denver South Platte, check out this brown trout that was sent to us from Robbie Lawson, a longtime Trouts customer:

Nice work Robbie!  And thanks to everyone who helps make the South Platte River a better fishery every day.  To read the entire article CLICK HERE
