Misc fishing...

Bass and Stripers have sort of taken over the last week or two but I did get out stalking Carp today solo. Hundreds of fish are around. Some post spawn, spawners were up in the shallow creeks but the majority have still yet to get it done. Lots of cruising and layed up fish and those are the ones I like to target so it was a really satisfying day with some killer eats. With water temps in the mid 60s there are fish in all stages. An explosive midge hatch had fish cruising just below the surface sucking up emerging bug with an occasional sip on top. They were not so focused on the tiny bugs that they wouldn't eat a streamer though. After the fist couple of miles of walking I had 10-12 fish landed. All small so I backed off the rest of the day and passed on many looking for better quality and was rewarded with three nice fish. 

 





Will be back after Bass and Stripers in the morning. Weather in the high 70s low 80s during the last moon phase really pushed them up and I'm looking forward to getting on the water.

Nice, really nice. My early season midging carp eat only them, anything else frightens the fish. Hundreds of fish-I keep hearing that now here and there. Good work!

Carpin is in full force in these parts Gregg. Personally I prefer to chase them Nov-feb. mild temps here provide pretty decent winter fishing and a lot less people out. Have a great season man!

Yeah, me too. When they are midging here they are completely oblivious to anything else.
