Bring on the rain!

After a really warm February with the average daytime temps in the high 70s we are finally getting a a couple of systems back to back that have something.Its been coming down all day. Love it!

Fishing has been off and on this year. Some trips are good some tough as nails. Carp on the fly has been solid though and I have not skunked yet this year. They are spawning on some areas but early for the large inland reservoirs and river carp.

Steelhead has been non existent the last month if I count the one trip. Lots of good sized Pike Minnow to grab streamers and couple of dink steelhead but that was it my friends..

We spent a couple of beautiful weather weekends at our cabin to unwind and catch up on chores..well, chores are still there. Next time right?

Drove down the coast last weekend..It was a perfect California day in the mid 70s..popped in on a Elephant Seal colony..They are massive creatures..It was interesting. Also had saw guy standing on a 300 ft cliff. Singing a song with a rabbit on is head. You just don't see that everyday and when you do, it must be documented. I'm thinking mushrooms Ha..

Urban Carp has been great all winter..


Monterey Bay. Ca


The other Trash fish?!

Big Sur, and hour so south of me is arguably some of the most beautiful coastline

Got to be mushrooms. Happen to stop by Maverick? Heard the waves were enormous.

I'm sure Mavericks went off with the big swell we've had. Did not go that far north though..

without giving away too many secrets i would love to know where you have been catching some urban carp, or any carp for that matter. I have just recently moved to the east bay but am originally from santa cruz and have not yet figured out where the good or even decent carp fishing is. Any tip on where to go would be much appreciated
