Help Support Denver's South Platte River

Help Support Denver's South Platte River

Riversmith is excited to support Denver Trout Unlimited’s Carp Slam Event being held on September 16th.  Carp Slam is a pro/am style fly fishing tournament that tests world class fly anglers and is presented by Denver Trout Unlimited and sponsored by Orvis.  You can help the cause by donating to any of the amateurs or pros who are fishing the tournament this year.  Your donation will be used by Denver TU to support environmental education and ongoing efforts to help better protect Denver’s South Platte River.

“Our CarpSlam fly fishing tournament helps restore the health and habitat of Denver South Platte River and supports our environmental education programs like Trout-in-the-Classroom and Meet-the-River team building events,” said Luke O’Bryan, President of Trout Unlimited’s Denver Chapter. “It also helps fund our continued fight for pollution protections on the Denver South Platte.”

This year for the first time, each member of the winning team will be awarded a standard River Quiver 2-Banger. 

Being a good member of the community that gives back to the environment or helps encourage environmental stewardship is part of Riversmith’s business philosophy.  Part of this includes giving back the environment in the form of charitable product donations and partnerships with river conservation, fishery rehabilitation projects and educational programs.  To learn more about Riversmith’s Charitable Giving approach and policy, CLICK HERE.  To donate to this year’s Carp Slam event CLICK HERE.
