I've heard all the stores about carp in the Poudre...but yesterday was my first day out exploring for them. This summer I did a little bit of carp fishing here and there and even bought a 7 weight for it. I like carp fishing because its challenging and any carp over 10 pounds has the ability to put you right into your backing. I was pretty amazed that I could ride my bike 10 minutes from my apartment in Old Town and find a serious amount of carp in the Poudre. Took me forever to hook into this one, but when I did, people driving by on the road above me where honking while i was trying to land it. First carp in the Poudre, and I'm sure not the last!
