Default Re: Carp flies and tactics

50 degree water temp seems to be the cut-off for my waters. I find them on dark, shallow mud flats that warm very quickly in the sun in April. I've fished the same flats every year for a few decades and never bested the second week of April. It's not a surprise that I first find them when the burrowing nymphs, midge and chironomid larvae and anelids are getting active in the sediment . The perch and bullhead have just spawned, too. They show up for the easy food. I have a canal near me that may get active as soon as it ices out. We'll see.
