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!

    Awesome catch on the fly. I must tell you though, that the carp has to be one of the ugliest fish I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing

  2. lol that fish wasn't too strong on looks.

  3. good deal, we'll have to meet up and chase some trout there this winter...

  4. Sure, I'm always looking for someone to hit those trout down there with. never gotten up and done it before...

    ...well, I did one day and blanked. I did catch some sandbass and lost a trout.

  5. Congrats on some November carp! Its allot of fun catching them any time of the year.
