Hit the Tangy through High Banks. Caught a Rock Bass on about every 2-3 casts along with a few Bluegills here and there.

Lot's of Carp around.

Only saw one Small Mouth, it looked huge and was making a run for a small Gill I was bringing in.

About 1/2 of the 50 or so caught on Hares Ear Nymph and then the other 1/2 or so on a Maribou, Rabit Strip Streamer in Black and Olive...both home-brewed flies.

Couldn't buy a topwater water strike.


Probably going to head further north tomorrow.

I have fished there a couple times and caught a few nothing much to speak of, the area looks prime though, carp must really be active because I seen more than a few the other day while I was out, did the recent rain help the water levels at all???

Fished the same access area but went south of the bridge this afternoon/evening. Fishing was slow, had to put the flies righjt down next to them and fish REAl SLOW.

Couple dozen Rock Bass...several were actually 8" or so, 3 7" or so Smallies and a couple Sunfish.

It was odd, the fish would hit for 10 minutes or so then nothing for 20-30 minutes, rinse and repeat...I supose the water is just too low, slow and warm at the moment BUT I am certainly no creek expert.

I caught most of my fish the other night in about a 50-75yd stretch and within a period of about 30-45 minutes, the other 2 1/2hrs I was out there I did alot of casting and few fish.
