May 10, 2012 - Lunch Time Delight

Here it is. The first fish I've caught since last October and the first post I've made in probably a year or so... I think I've only fished 4 times since January of 2011.

This is your small Steamboat Ditch carp. The picture really doesn't do it any justice but I figured it around 25" - 27", just eye balling. Carp are some of the finest fighting fish out there and this one was no exception. The carp are feeding off of and around the grasses right now. I found that in large groups they aren't very scary so you can get pretty close to them. This one hit a #10 olive streamer Bob tied for me that I was bouncing off the bottom along the edge of a grass patch. He hit probably on the 30th cast and I think it was more annoyed than it was hungry... bout 11:30 in the morning yesterday.

So things are slowing down a little bit for some of us and in addition to taking up new hobbies we're going to be on the river a lot more. I personally intend to target the Nevada part of the Truckee particularly hard this year and may post some on these hobbies too.

Remember to check out the updated flows on the site before you head out to the river. They are always up to date and accurate.
