Current River Flow Updates

Latest update 6/23/2022

Carp and smallmouth action have been great lately. Clarity is excellent as well. #4-8 weighted craw/bugger imitations are still working the best for us.

Historical River Flow

River Information

The Denver South Platte (or DSP) flows right through the heart of Denver and offers anglers the ultimate in urban fly fishing. The river is home to a wide variety of warm water fish, however, does hold trout in some of the upper sections. Without a doubt, no fish has put the DSP on the map more than the Carp. These ultra spooky fish have become a prime target for many of us here at the shop and have both frustrated and rewarded countless other anglers across this city and beyond. Aside from the Carp, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Suckers, Catfish and Walleye all reside in this waterway. The upper few miles, just downstream of C-470, north to Mineral Blvd, typically runs a little colder and holds the highest density of trout. This stretch is also undergoing stream renovations which should improve the quality of the trout fishery.

Seasonal Conditions

Fishable year round. The warmer months will be most productive for the warm water species here.
