Carp Tournament In Denver Will Help Trout

  Written by Environmental Specialist Paul Day


Why, some might ask, would competent fly fishers pay good money to catch something in downtown Denver as ugly as a carp? The answer lies several miles upriver on the urban South Platte.

Todd Fehr is with the environmental group Trout Unlimited.

"Today, the river in many places is thin, too shallow for trout to live in," said Fehr, an officer with the Denver Chapter of TU.

TU has plans for turning the marginal water into a recreational fishery.
