Heating up!

Great day on the water today!  The fish are getting active and a well placed hybrid was generally rewarded with the sight of your backing.  At one point, in a narrow channel just choked with carp, I had fish literally racing each other to the fly.  That doesn't happen often on the big C. You gotta take advantage of it.
I love mirrors
I covered a lot of water, and it paid off.  I ended the day landing four carp over 20 lbs, two big mirrors (15 and 17 lbs), a bunch of high teens fish and too many 8-11 lb fish to count. Unreal day of carping on the Columbia.
This was one for the memory bank.  I love spring!

Damn, those are some sweet fish! I'm lucky if I get four over 20 in a month! I was planning on fishing the Columbia this summer but had to change plans due to expenses, have to settle for big brook trout in Mane I guess ;)
