I was driving by the Platte River & 88th Avenue and looked over to the north side and saw some huge carp jumping. Has anyone ever fished this and what did you use?
I know there's some catfish in there, and its probably just a catch & release, but it sure would be fun to catch a nice 10 pounder, or the way my luck is running, even a 5 pounder would be great.

thanks. I appreciate the information. I'm retired and it just seemed like a place close by that I could catch some fish, and would'nt feel like the skunk got me this early into the season

It's the river. The lakes won't be open till mid March. By that time, I'll have my boat out and ready for some serious fishing at the lakes.
