I've been seeing all the posts with everyone carp fishing lately - now that all the rivers are blown out - and I am starting to think about carp fishing at Chatfield again this year. The second week of June is a good time to start stalking them - it was June 15, 2008 that they were getting their groove on and I hooked into a bunch of them there.
I looked up the past history of the water levels Chatfield has - last year it was at 5,434 ft - which was flood levels and about 2 ft over ideal conditions.
I just checked the US Army Corps of Engineers site (type in CHFI) for water level and it seems to be at a normal level of 5,431.56 ft. That is right in line with two years ago - so I am thinking I need to go check it out.
I am thinking about heading over there on Saturday for a look - it is going to be some crappy weather, but I don't think the fish will much care. I'll break out the big rod and reel and have some fun.
