So I am on a family trip in Glenwood Springs. We are having a blast but me being me I keep looking at the Colorado flowing by the hotel and wondering. Even at this altitude it already has a carpy look to it. I suspect the chalky brown color to the water is the norm but I still wonder. How far to the nearest carp and are they reachable with a fly? I have heard rumors and rumblings but know nothing. I remember canoeing the Colorado in Grand Junction as a youth. Those vaguely pleasant memories scream carp on the fly to my adult self, but I could be a state or two from the Colorado River carpin for all I know. Knowledge is power my friends and I am powerless.
