Next week i was going to go downtown and see if i can get some carp on a fly rod and i got the idea from watching the videos by coloradoskiesoutfitters fly shop and was wondering if anybody knew where to start because i think i heard one time that around the Elitch Gardens area is good?

Your choice is good, as there are a couple good schools there. Understand however that carp are extremely intellegent as fish go, and the downtown area sees a lot of fishing traffic. So expect to see plenty of fish that will be extremely wary.

Near REI is a good place to start. I would highly recommend going farther North. Commerce city area. There is a much better population of carp from 58th Avenue on. Just watch for rocks thrown in your direction! You never know when you are standing on somebody's front porch.
