Ive been eye balling a small shallow lake from google earth that I finally located. Really strange place. It does a have a good poplulation of carp but it looks like the poachers and bank fisherman have found it too. Random shit floating around and spooky fish so I didn't stay long. Maybe once we get some hot weather I'll give it another go. Here is what I found on my first visit...
|This falls into the random shit catagory|
Striper on the fly is good for numbers of small fish as of late so I spent most of the time looking for shallow carp on some clear hard bottom flats. I was able to get three shots on three individule monsters. All three were in the 35-40lb range. It was very excited to be casting to this kind of quality. I'll be more excited when I stick one though! I'll be back with a different angle. I may hike in or take my small skiff, beach it and come in on foot. Clear water reservior Carp are tough as hell from a boat and best approached on foot in my opinion. Stay tuned and we'll see what happens. One of those beasts came off a shallow flat and showed up before I could put a fly on her..I was able to get a quick photo of that fish. So broad and heavy! A Beautiful fish. They were moving in two's and three's around small off shore islands, points and any other west facing hard bottom areas.
