Pesky game fish got in the way of carp fishing today.

To start - the weather was backwards: beautiful yesterday as we sat inside at a friends watching football... and 40's and overcast today when I got out fishing. Maybe the cold snap put off the carp... not sure. All I could manage was a smallmouth and some redhorse - very cool fishes, but not my target. Right when I got to the hole I caught three great fish... Then, in the middle of the day (this is a Monday no less) three people arrived and cast bait over my head into the best water available. That was a major negative for me... it was down hill from there. The only highlights from that point were looks I got from passersby as I ate a cold pizza lunch sitting in the river.

It may be time to hang up the carp flies until spring... start looking at fall/winter trout season.

i wouldn't hang it up yet! i bet those big carp are in there. you just need to find where they hold in that stretch.

i'll be doing some trout fishing in MT at the end of the month with my dad.

There is still one spot that is just FULL of carp... but with current flow and accessibility, I cannot get a fly to them. When flow dies a bit, I will try again. You'd love it - it's quite a puzzle.

take a picture, send it to me...you know i love figuring that stuff out.

last time we fished there, i had it down. i could set the hook every time my fly got to a spot and know i would have a fish on...pretty cool.
