August 5, 2011 – Joe Pool Lake – Loyd Park.

Went out to the lake to try and catch a carp.  I got several bluegills, greens, and longears using the pink  berkeley maggots I used last time I came to the creek.  I even caught a small bass with the berkeley bait sitting under a bobber. Water in the creek is still low, but the path has been cleared.  Just stay to the left of the “trail” markers.

I decided to try and catch a carp with my fly rod.  I spooked about 20 of them sitting in shallow water, and actually casted to six.  Caught one two pounder on a black wooly bugger in about two feet of water.
