EVENT:Carp Slam at South Platte Denver
DETAILS:What is the Carp Slam?
The Carp Slam is a fly-fishing tournament that takes place right in the heart of Denver with 15 teams competing to catch as many Denver South Platte (DSP) carp as possible using only the fly rod and unscented flies. The tournament brings anglers of all skill levels together. Each team is comprised of one pro and one amateur. The DSP is split into 15 beats running from Littleton to E470 with each beat designed to equally distribute fishing opportunities between teams. Teams are randomly assigned two beats and the first is fished during the morning session and the other in the afternoon. In the end, the team with the greatest cumulative inches of carp takes home the trophy. The winning team last year landed 5 carp that totaled more than 125 inches. Thatís a lot of DSP gold.

Why do we do it?
The slam is an excellent opportunity to socialize and test your mettle as a fly carper but, the primary objective is to raise funds to enhance the DSP. The Carp Slam helps restore the health and habitat of Denver South Platte River and supports environmental education programs like Trout-in-the-Classroom and Meet-the-River team building events. Denver Trout unlimited is working with other stakeholders to add 10 beats of Lifetime Angling Access Areas to the five major projects slated for the Denver South Platte over the next ten years. Check out the Carp Slam website for more information on how Denver Trout Unlimited and partners are taking action to make the DSP river healthier while supporting education programs to engage young anglers.
