Last Saturday I had a family reunion down in Soda Springs and decided I would try to do a little carp fishing while in the area. As I pulled up to the lake and got out and looked around the carp were everywhere. I rigged up the 8 wt with 0x tippet and threw on a trusty San Juan worm. I found myself a tailing carp out of the hundreds to pick from and it didn’t take to long for the action to begin. I only stayed and fished for about 45 minutes because I had a few other waters I wanted to scout out, but I made plans to return in a couple of days. Well today was the day I went back with a couple of guys from the Big Fish Tackle online fishing forum. The conditions were a lot different than I was expecting. Wind was blowing hard and the water was very off color in comparison to Saturday. The water had also risen over a foot and the fish were feeding right on the bank, too close at times to even cast to. Despite the poor conditions, we were able to land a few fish. The fly of the day was the San Juan worm once again. I ended up catching five or six total. The numbers weren’t there for me today but a couple were pretty decent sized fish. Hopefully next time the conditions will be a little bit more conducive to catching good numbers of fish.
