Storm Triggered Carp on Blackfoot Reservoir

blog-July-3-2014-1-flyfishing-for-carpI headed back to Blackfoot Reservoir to get Skip Brittenham into a few more carp while he’s here on his 4th of July visit.  Fishing started slow but gradually they started to eat.  When the first clouds filled the sky we only had one landed.  Then rumbles of thunder came from the west followed by strong westerly gusts.  I saw some carp start rolling in the waves.  Thinking it was our last shot before the storm, I had Skip wade out and cast.  The first three casts in a row he caught a 10lb plus mirror carp!  We ended up landing seven!

    Skip told me he caught an 18 pounder, which as we have experienced before, may have beem a slight exaggeration.
