Lakes and Reservoirs
Within an easy drive of downtown Denver, you can find an array of lakes and reservoirs holding large carp. Stillwater carp season typically runs from mid-March into October. Typically, we stalk the margin of the lakes looking for targets. Ideally you’ll find happy carp tailing, already on the feed. Other times, wading can be productive. The guides know the area lakes and the best ways to approach them.
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) Carp Fly Fishing
Turn up the degree of difficulty a few notches and chase the big boys from a stand up paddleboard! Over the past few seasons, we’ve been exploring new areas for carp on the board. The SUP allows you to access fish that would be difficult or impossible from shore or by wading, while still allowing for stealth and angler visibility.
Paddleboarding experience is helpful and recommended before taking on this trip. To give you a better idea about this experience, check out these videos from Fly-Carpin. The website features a myriad of articles, tips and videos about carp on the fly.
