Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey day everyone! Hope you guys had a great day.

As always, I got to go to Rough Creek again. While we didn't get to stay any more than a day this time but it was still great. Good food and even better fishing. The crappie were pretty active toward the end of the day.
 I found them about 6 foot deep on some stumps right next to the dock.

 Nice one
 Caught these along with a few nice bluegill and redear sunfish. Hopefully this year I'll be able to go during the bass spawn and have a chance at getting another double digit bass from here!

November Carp on the fly

This would be the latest in the year I've ever caught carp on the fly.

I fished LLELA again Saturday and Sunday. When I got there Saturday I learned that they were generating, there was 335cfs coming down according to the website. AWESOME! It really turns on down there when there's water coming downstream.

Picked up the first common pretty quickly, then caught a second one from the slough behind me.

I made my way down to the creek past the railroad bridge and saw a ridiculous number of fish; Carp, Buffalo, Gar, everything. Couldn't get any commitments though, I did have a few very close chases from carp.

Sunday was completely different. This time Jonathan came with me. Not only did we not catch anything sizeable, but no carp or buffs were landed. I caught a 2 inch long bass on the first cast, I seriously thought the fly had a leaf caught on it. Well, I'll be back soon, they'll start stocking trout down there in a few short weeks!
