Carp Spawn?

4 posts in this topic

Does anybody know when the carp will start to spawn in the minnesota? I know a few good spots, but for the life of me i cant remember when it was I fished them there last year. I know the water temp is too low and with highs in the 40's throughout next week i'm thinkin' it could be awhile.

Ya, i wasn't planning on bowfishing. Want to bring the fly rod down and get it some action since i haven't been able to make it down to the streams. Plus not much puts up a better fight than a carp on the fly!

From the Book; Carp on the fly.

41F Carp begin pre-spawn move to shallows.

63f Probable lower limit for spawning.

66f Optimal temperature for carp.

I hope this helps.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
