Looking for YOUR secret spot

Discussion in 'Warm Water Species' started by Kaiserman, Jul 2, 2014.

  1. Not sure if asking this question is as "taboo" as asking for trout locations, but I guess I won't know until I ask. The whole world knows that a guy could catch a hundred of these fish, throw them on the bank, and not put a dent in their populations.

    So..., I'm not actually looking for any particular spots, but I need some help with carp locations on Long Lake (Spokane River) from shore.

    I wanted to try a new place today, due to time constraints, but only ended up driving around the lake for 2 hrs today, trying to figure out were I could just fish from shore. Never did...

    Does a guy need to have a boat to get to the "flats" locations?

    Thanks
     
  2. You've got alot of balls asking a question like this... or maybe just two balls.:)
     
  3. drive to greenlake in Seattle. use the 1/4 glazed donut fly. Slays the carp

  4. I think you meant Cap Hill
     
  5. actually- there are MASSIVE carp (regular and mirror) and koi in greenlake, and the guys who fish for them SLAY them with the 1/4 glazed donut
     
  6. It's such a tough spot for bank fishing. I've done the same thing numerous times trying to find a non private spot to locate carp and I've struck out. gots to get on there with a boat and then recon from there

  7. I'm more secretive about my carp flats than my trout spots. It's hard to find the perfect flat.

  8. Yeah, I was wondering that...

    For what it's worth, thanks for the reply anyway mills
     
  9. Not much for bank options. Many many options from a boat if you run from tum tum or 9mile.

  11. I usually fish Banks Lake for Carp. They're everywhere so it's not hard to find them. Just look for shallow areas. I fish from the shore and get plenty of shots at the Carp. Catching them however is not as easy. I want to know if there are any good Carp areas on the Columbia near Vantage since it's closer to home. Any tips would be helpful.
     

  12. I don't know of any particular places to go on the Columbia. I have gone to Banks before, but those are the "spookiest" fish I've ever been after.
     
  13. Any good spots near Vantage are likely toast because of the Wanapum Dam drawdown; at least the ones I usually fish are.
     
  14. I catch a lot of carp in Banks, but much prefer the clearer water of Lake Roosevelt, or anywhere on the Columbia. Banks Lake is just too murky to get the visual eats I like.
