WATCH // READING WATER - Fly Fishing for Carp on the Denver South Platte with Rick Mikesell

Ivan Orsic / Oct 8, 2021

Reading water and understanding how to present and fish your fly in a specific section of water trumps fly selection in many ways. We're excited to launch a new SERIES on our YouTube Channel titled: "READING WATER." In each episode of READING WATER, we will tag along with a skilled and experienced angler who will give us insight into how they approach a specific section of water from all angles - GEAR, RIGGING, FLY CHOICE, SEASONALITY, FLOWS, and the like.

For this episode of READING WATER, we joined Trouts own Rick Mikesell as he stalks the banks of the Denver South Platte looking to catch carp on the fly. Rick talks through his gear selection, available forage, fly selection, rigging, approach, identifying happy fish and not-so-happy fish, and presentation for these spooky game fish. From the drag and drop to fighting a hooked carp, Rick touches all the bases it takes to be successful when chasing carp along the Denver South Platte. Enjoy in HD.

Looking to help out the Denver South Platte, the Carp Slam XV Amateurs are accepting donations on behalf of Denver Trout Unlimited. Learn more HERE.

Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to our YOUTUBE channel as we introduce a slew of NEW on-the-water and educational videos & series.
