This section of South Platte flows right through the city of Denver and is quickly becoming the “go to” destination for after work sport, just 15 minutes from many front doors. The river is easily accessible and provides excellent fishing. Warning: hipster invasive.

Fishing through Denver has been steady as of late. Colder temperatures are starting to push the carp into deeper holes and making it much tougher to sight fish. You can certainly still hook up with these big donkeys but your best bet is a deep nymph rig with a bobber and a ton of weigth. With colder temps these carp will all push into the water features and deeper holes along the platte. If you are looking for some close to home trout fishing the river closer to the dam at Chatfieild is your best bet. Starting in the Carson Nature Center and working down stream towards the Brek brewery is usually my play when looking for a few quick rainbows
