Golden Ghosts. Ditch Donkeys. The Trash Hatch. If you've ever had the chance to meet the stars of DTU's Carp Slam on a fly rod then you know what the rush is all about!
No secrets here: I love the Denver South Platte and I love catching carp. The DSP is a very dynamic stretch of water with more fish species than people realize. Personally I've caught smallmouth bass, walleye, brown trout, rainbow trout, and suckers. This is just the BEGINNING of the potential that the DSP has to be an amazing fishery!
Here is a snapshot of what the money I raise through the Carp Slam will go to:
Denver Trout Unlimited spends money raised to restore the health and habitat of Denver South Platte River. Like:
3.26 million gallons of space in the Chatfield Environmental pool
Temperature and dissolved oxygen monitoring.
More habitat, rocks cluster and LUNKER pipes below the water line.
Youth programs, visitor outings, and social media.
Since this water is so near and dear to me here's what I'm going to do: I will match donations dollar for dollar up to $500- hopefully we can hit that $1000 goal! I will match $0.50 for every additional dollar raised after the $500 mark.
Thanks so much for stopping by- your support and generosity is appreciated more than you know! Looking forward to seeing you on the water!
