Trip Report - Blackfoot Reservoir Carpin'

I went over to Blackfoot Reservoir today. The water is still quite cold and many of the carp are still holding deep. However, there were a few pre-spawn males holding in about 1' of water near shore, which was great for sight casting with a fly rod.

There was a bunch of wildlife out and about today, including sandhill cranes, a golden eagle, a beaver and a few pelicans.

It took a few seconds for these sluggish carp to realize they'd been hooked. Once they did, however, they got me into my backing pretty quickly...

Overall, it was relatively slow - considering what the fishing is like here in May, June and July. Still, a slow day at Blackfoot Reservoir is pretty darn fun.

Sweet! Thanks for the report. I am glad to hear its starting to pick up at Blackfoot. I've been tying carp flies lately and can't wait to get out and a few more.
