For eleven years now, Denver Trout Unlimited has been holding their annual fly fishing tournament, the South Platte Pro-Am Carp Slam, benefiting the Urban South Platte River through Denver, Colorado. The Carp Slam is a pro-am, fly fishing tournament which has resulted in over $100,000 going to South Platte River restoration and enhancement, and acted as the catalyst for additional investments of tens of millions of dollars. DTU and this year’s Slamateur’s are asking for your support again this year to help us achieve one of our most ambitious goals yet!
This year Denver Trout Unlimited will be supporting the Chatfield Reallocation Study to increase flows in the South Platte during the 60+ zero flow days on the South Platte. Denver Trout Unlimited is already providing funding to study how to best manage the increased releases. We will also be using donations to ‘purchase’ shares of the Environmental Pool, for $7,500 per acre foot. By sponsoring Denver Trout Unlimited you will be ensuring the South Platte River will flow for future generations to use and enjoy. This is one of the most paramount times in the river’s history!
We are challenging our slamature's this year to raise enough money to purchase one acre foot in the Chatfield Environmental Pool, so know that any donation you give this year will provide more water and better habitat to all the fish in the South Platte River! Thank you in advance for supporting our Slamatures, and supporting DTU's water quality and quantity initiative!
