Alot of mud is kicked up which becomes a feeding frenzy for non spawning carp to come in and eat all the junk being kicked off the bottom. I have landed some where in the neighbor hood of 20 this year and in the first two days of the spawn I had muti fish days. The water is so muddy and the fish are so charged up they have no fear of your fly and arnt spooky one bit. All you have do do is look not at the spawners but at less active loner fish that seem to be feeding and I promise its like taking candy from a baby. In the second day of the spawn I landed my largest ever on the fly which was estimated between 15 and 18 pounds and the next day landed one near ten (I put the pics up in my thread and in the picture thread) . Do your self a favore go tie a few back stabbers grab your 8 weight and get to the lake cause the spawn is your best chance of the year to l;and a HOG!! amen.

    I'd have to agree. I've seen some beasts when I went out lately. I've had a few follows and takes and I could have probably landed a few had I not goofed up. Adrenaline and presenting a fly don't mix well sometimes.

    Good to see someone else who dosn't hang it up when the spawn is on. Carp can be caught all year and personaly belive that the best fishing is in the spawn. Not to mention all this fish are jacked up so even the feeders have longer and more wild runs!

    I get a little discouraged sometimes, but I haven't gave up yet. I get a little confused though lol. The biggest problem is the water. It's got so much scum and stuff in it, I have to clean my fly and line off after every cast. If it clears up, I'll be in business. Plus, I've only been able to fish for a short amount of time every time I've went out. I plan on trying to get out today or tomorrow.
