Carp Tour 2014

Last Saturday was our annual Carp-O-Rama carnival at Pawnee Reservoir.  A lot of folks came out and I hope they had a great time with us and maybe learned a thing or three along the way.  The fishing was slow.  We had a significant rainfall event overnight before the event and I wonder if the carp fishing might have been better at the upper end of the reservoir where there was some water flowing in?

Regardless, if you were not there, well, you missed it!  Everybody who was anybody was there!  But, I want to let folks know in this blog post that if you could not make it, that is not the only time you can fish for common carp!  In fact in July we will have another Carp-O-Rama festival at Lake Maloney south of North Platte.  Stay tuned for more information on that event.

We are also doing some more pre-baiting of waters on weekends throughout the summer to make it a little easier to find and catch some carp.  All of that information and more is included here, Carp Tour 2014.



Let me refer to one other thing that is mentioned in that brochure; near the end it says to visit our website, OutdoorNebraska.org for cleaning and cooking suggestions.  Let me make some of that easier for you.  Here is a video on carp-cleaning. . . .
