|The Blacktone River was a raging torrent of|
water today and was unfishable in every place
I looked at. It was also dirty and loaded
I'm not a fan of high water. High water will send the rivers up to unfishable levels. The Blackstone River right now is a raging torrent of fast currents and high, high water. In many places I scouted today, the water was in the woods and you couldn't even get near the water. The water was also dirty and carried with it loads of debris.
The ponds and lakes are not much better. They are also very high too. In one place I fish, the water came up over a foot overnight. In places I scouted today, the water was in the woods and under bushes. Leaves and other floating debris were all over the place. While those places are still fishable, finding fish that want to feed can be a challenge. Many fish will tend to feed along the shore in the woods and under bushes since there might be a foot or two of water where there was dry land a week ago.
So, hopefully the water will recede in the coming days and we can get back to catching carp again.
