Plan B was to check another place I was pretty sure I would get some shots on smaller fish. Sure enough, there was quantity and all cookie cutter 3-4lb fish tailing in very skinny water. I like this place because you can lay out longer casts with out any back cast obstructions and you get lots of shots on singles. That's a good thing because they are skittish as hell with the clear water.
Wind was right and they were happy and strapping on the post spawn feed bag so I spent the afternoon covering all the good flats for 8-10 fish. I just don't see many fish here over 7-8lbs so it is what it is and suited perfect for a 5wt.. What they don't have in size they make up for it being some the hardest fighting for there size and the cleanest most pristine carp I catch anywhere. The fish in this place will also rise to dries a little later in the year.
