The Denver Carp Slam is back and better than ever this year!
The Denver Trout Unlimited Chapter is hard at work again putting together, not only an amazing event, but something that can benefit the South Platte River system for years and years.
What does the Carp Slam Event promote?
Actually, the Denver Chapter of Trout Unlimited has been working with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District for over several years studying how the Carson Nature Center’s reach of the South Platte can be enhanced to support a better native fish population, recreational fishery and riparian habitat. In 2011 the city of Littleton and the board of South Suburban Parks and Recreation approved the design and funded the first phase of restoration which is slated to begin in 2012. Denver Trout Unlimited has committed $10,000, raised primarily through the Carp Slam, to the project and has leveraged that money into a Fishing is Fun grant of $80,000.
