Desperate times calls for desperate measures. We decided to check out some local brown water for carp. I've done my fair share of this and if you've read the early posts of this blog you'll know I've spent a lot of time urban carpin'. Quite frankly I grew out of that stage and really came to dislike this style of fishing. I haven't done in in over a decade.Given this was really the only option we decided to check out how the local urban river was doing. We spotted a few but not as many as we'd hoped. We only made a few casts and realized it was not worth anymore effort. There simply was too much material in the water for a decent drift and without waders we couldn't get a proper angle or drift on them Water visibility also made it near impossible so we gave up rather quickly. The outing only proved once again why I stopped doing this type of fishing.
