The flows have spiked again with the heavy rains further upstream on the Platte. The south Platte through Denver has been fishing well for Bass and Carp though. The hot weather has made the fishing best in the morning and late afternoons. Grab a fly rod and explore your local reservoirs and ponds. Bass will eat just about anything that is imitating a smaller baitfish. Try different retrieves to entice a strike. The bass fishing seems to be different everyday so try something you’re not accustomed to.
Keep an eye on the flows on the Platte through Denver. Once the flows drop, the carp fishing will become unbelievably incredible. The visibility on the Platte right now is making carp fishing tricky as you will struggle to sight fish for those mid dogs. You don’t have to venture far out of town to find good fishing.
