Its been awhile since the last time I really fished my local brown water. For over a year everytime I drove past I noticed that the water was always up, making sight casting to carp nearly impossible so I simply gave up on the matter. With most of our recent outings a bust, I decided to check the brown water once again and target bass this time. After a lengthy discussion of our hatred of hipster sportsmen posers, Chul and I hit the water. In all honesty I didn't have much faith but after only five casts, I hooked up on a fairly respectable largemouth.
The river has changed and while it looks like there is a lot of water, there are plenty of areas to sight cast to carp in the shallows. When we saw a few we switched tactics and I removed my bunny leech in favor for a Prince Harry Aggravator. Unfortunately we had no success today with the golden ghost. The wind made it problematic to make a proper presentation. Despite the lack of carp we found several spots with baby and juvenile bass which would take my fly on every cast.
