They just might have to add a trout division to the South Platte Pro-Am Carp Slam.
Denver’s project to ensure at least some water for fish in a 40-mile urban stretch of the South Platte River — even during the winter low-flow months when people practically drain it — is gaining momentum.
A fundraising goal has been met to buy space in Chatfield Reservoir, southwest of Denver, to store an “environmental pool” of water – about 500 acre-feet (163 million gallons), Denver Water officials confirmed last week.
Starting next year, state aquatic biologists plan to release that water strategically, concentrating on 65 or so low-flow days each year.
