Loeb Lake fishing

Just before our current cold spell, I went to Central Park with the hope of catching a November
carp.  During the warm weather we have at this time of year carp are active and can be taken
on deer hair flies.  The air temperature was 18C for most days.  We had not had the first frost
of the fall yet.

I chummed but they did not come.  In hindsight, I should have fished near the restaurant on the
east side of the lake.  Probably the rocks there would have held the heat from the sun longer.
The warmer the water, the more active  the fish are.  The forecast for next week looks good, so
I plan to return to this lake a few more times before winter arrives.
