Spring Fish-in Today Yields a Few Fish
We held our annual RI CAG spring fish-in today at Brickyard Pond in Barrington, a place that is usually loaded with carp. Not today. With a cold northwest wind blowing and very cold morning temperatures, the fish were just not in an active mood. However, a small group of us did manage to catch two decent size carp and a couple of nice size trout. All the fish fell for doughballs. Corn, the hot bait in most places, is illegal to use in Brickyard since the place is stocked with trout. The carp, both commons, were good size (for this place) in the 8-10 lb. range. There was also at least one other carp on that was lost. So, considering the conditions, we had an ok day.
