What type of flys through out the year are best for carp in lakes? Seasonal Breakdown.
I've done best with large nymphs similar to Clouser's swimming nymph or Brad Befus' carp nymph. I think Umpqua now sells the latter. When you have a lot of cottonwood "cotton" on the water, try a small clump of white CDC, and if you get a good hopper hatch, a floating or drowned hopper imitation can get you action as well. Some of my carp-fishing friends (fiends?) use various colors of wooly buggers with deadly effect as well. Finally, if the lake has a good crawdad population, bring some small (size 8 or smaller) crawdad patterns along, because the golden ghost of the mudflats will pounce on those as well.10percent said:What type of flys through out the year are best for carp in lakes?
