Flyfishing Carp-ital of America?


This just in from our good pal Conway Bowman in San Diego... the mako shark bite is happening big time, but it seems the good Captain has found another little fascination that's chewing up a lot of his free time. Conway's gone carp. And seeing how the guy holds a world record for fly-caught redfish, travels the country to make television shows, and diddles around with 200-plus-pound predators for kicks, I'd imagine the carpin' must be pretty good in So. Cal. to have lit his pilot like that.

"KD, it's off the hook; I got a 20-pounder yesterday," he explained on a call yesterday.

Which got me thinking: What would be the flyfishing carp-ital of America?

I pop the cap on a Three Floyds Alpha King when watching CB's Shows. My vote... Arm Pit of the Nation "Gary Indiana" Little and Grand Calumet River..Body Parts,Stripped Cars and Golden Bones...all to myself


Sounds good. In early August I'll be rolling the circ. around Lake Michigan on a story for F&S. We might have to hit that if the bite is on and you have the time.


Grand Traverse Bay, Michigan. Hands down.


I would throw SouthWest PA in there. All the lakes streams and rivers with muddy bottoms...industrial trash fishing at its finest.


Lake St. Clair in Detroit is pretty sweet too.

Not quite all to yourself, I fish there too! (look for the big guy in the blue flannel)
Can't agree with you more, though. Who knows what other things could be lurking in the Calumet's dark and murky waters?!
I'd also have to put in a vote for the backwaters of the Kankakee river, a few miles east of Wilmington, IL.
I wasn't sure if it was carp or a submarine I seen in there.


KD give me a shout in August if your cutting through the armpit.

The Chicago river is another good bet, but like the Calumet, there's no telling what's swimmin' around in there.
They pulled an alligator outa there yesterday.

Big Sharks they are not but as Conway Knows they can kick your "Arse" just the same, and are picky eaters too!
