For ten 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. We 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, $10,000, 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 any one of the many our Carp Slam Competitors, 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!
