caught a carp on the fly
caught this ugly guy today on the north santiam....can anyone confirm if this is a carp or is it a squawfish..WTH is it???either way it put up a nice fight on the fly rod
That is one nasty,bowling ball sucking sucker fish! I think they are lower than carp on the "ugly chain"...yuck!
Not a pike minnow. carp? peamouth? whatever they are.
definitely not pike minnow , maybe a weird pic but not like the carp I know , mouth certainly says sucker fish
Its not a pikeimnnow or Peamouth, Its a sucker fish. In its spawning stage... Thats why it looks half dead.
Thats definitely not a Carp!! Sucker... dont know the actual name of them, but.. sucker.
Where did you pull that out off?
got it on the north santiam
Hey, they may be ugly but at least they are native to the region.
Time to get the trebles and head to the crick
It's a sucker.....just doing his job.
Always put 'em back....you don't want to kill the janitors !
Years ago after I got started fly tying I headed to the headwaters of the deschutes up off of the Cascades Lakes Highway and hike in a mile or so to a beautiful hole right below a sweet looking riffle......I tied on my elk hair caddis and lovingly casted upstream and let my fly roll down the ripples and into the deep pool below.....it made three or four laps around the hole before something from deep down below darted up from the shadows and snatched my fly.....the fight was on.....could this have been that monster brookie I had heard of?....nope.....I landed a 14" white fish....I was hoping my first would have been a native brooky....but nevertheless, I had successfully tricked my first of what would become thousands of fish onto my line. I'll never forget that ugly thing........
