Fly Fishing here and there , October 2015

This month things have slowed down and carp are not feeding at the same time I'm fishing for them.

 I went to The Bronx River to fish. I saw more large mouth bass than usual, which is good.

Looking west on the river.  Carp that were feeding were sucking things off the river bed

The river looked great you can sight fish for carp here.  They will take egg patterns too.

A lone carp suspending in the river. Bass and panfish could be seen suspending in bunches
up and down the river.

This lake has carp but was covered in algae during a hot sunny day at Crystal Lake in New Jersey.

Looking east

another view from the west side of the lake, messy!

I went to Dahnerts Lake for bass and carp.  Things were slow until  I saw a carp jump out of the water at the north end of the lake.  After I walked to that part of the lake; I was really surprised to see  more than a dozen carp, of varying sizes, feeding.  I ran back to my spot to get my gear and my fly rod.  When I returned to where I saw carp they were still there.  But slowly one by one, the pod moved and swam away.  They never returned.

A few Canada geese doing nothing but standing around on the river.

Perch are in the Bronx River too.  This one took a small white woolie bugger.

Me and "Two Rods" went to Clove Lake .  We saw signs of carp but only caught catfish.
