I think they are just a genetic mutation of a common carp. I've only seen and caught them in Wyoming though...

Mirror and leather carp are just variants of the regular common carp, as is a koi. I bet someone would get mighty upset if you put an arrow through their $5000 koi, though. Just about any body of water that has regular carp will also have a few mirror and leather carp.

There are also grass carp in lots of lakes and ponds in CO, and persistent rumors of a few grass carp x bighead carp hybrids in a couple of lakes.
