Got out for 1.75 hours today, and fished the Big River...
A lot of rain last night, and the STraight River is blasting up even as I write this - see the USGS link on this web log. When I got to this location the gauge read ~0.30 feet (I was in a hurry to get out so I didn't read it closely). When I left, it read 1.10 feet. That is nearly 10 inches of water in an hour and forty five minutes. I could see the clarity dropping, and big debris was floating downstream too... in fact a big log bumped me and I about had a heart attack. What that meant for fishing: garbage. Right when I got there I caught about ten fish, four different species... but only hooked two carp, and one got off after making a nice run. However, the one that I did land was a mirror carp - my first ever! Really cool fish... Only other note - couldn't believe it, but some guys actually boated up the river and fished next to me... the place is becoming far too popular for my liking. I think a certain epic day in May is really drawing the people... must be that, right? They were smoking, draining a case of beer, and casting very close to my person. Not to mention throwing giant lures... they caught two bullheads and snagged one carp that popped off at the boat.

great mirror J! i caught a nice mirror today too, and an absolute beast of a carp. wait until you see the pics. KB is emailing me the pictures tomorrow morning. monster fish that went deep into my backing twice.

as high as the water was today, the fish were ALL OVER. i had a grass carp swim by within 6 feet of me and KB. i asked him how big he thought it was, he said 4ft long. i think we'll head there next weekend despite high water...even when tough i caught some nice fish, and just to have a beast like that come close to you is cool.

sorry to see that boat up there. someone must have been watching!
