Local rivers blown out, now is a great time for carp on the fly in Eugene

The local trout fishing has tanked this week with the high water, but the carp fishing can be pretty hot this time of year. Nymphing buggy patterns under an indicator works well when you’re fishing blind. When you’re sight fishing, be stealthy. Stand well away from the bank when you prepare yourself to cast, try to detect what direction the fish is moving and lead it considerably. They look like deliberate, cautious feeders and can be, but they can also pounce on your fly like a hungry trout.

    Now that’s pretty cool. I have never fished carp here in New Brunswick. I have never heard of carp being here but it sure would be fun to hook into one or two.

    Another fish I have never fished here and I know they are here, are Stripers. I hear about how hard they fight and how big they get but I just have never gotten the chance to fish them.
