Just a quick Carbon update for ya'll; Fished yesterday and today in the rain, my favorite. Quite a few folks out and catching chums. Seems like the river got a fresh batch of them in the last few days. None were chrome bright, but not in bad shape. Saw one bright brat caught on jig and float, and heard reports of several others, including a #15 on Friday, but I cannot confirm. Floats and jigs/eggs or worms was the tackle of choice for almost everyone I saw. I caught one chum on a pink worm yesterday and hit it with the flyrod and polar shrimp this morning. Saw one steelie chase it out from an undercut, but that was all for today. I absolutely love it when the water is so clear that you can sight cast to them. Makes it a bit tougher to get them to bite, but the water is low enough right now that you can get right up on the undercuts and flop it in there. The water is low, and about as clear as it gets. The general consensus was that everyone thought the water would be higher with all the rain, but I guess the temps up on the mountain have kept the flows low. Hopefully the water will come up and that will get a few more fish heading up. I'll be there for sure. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!
