Hiya folks! New to the forums and to the Garland/Rowlett area. Im looking for a couple of good spots to get into a bit of catch and release carp fishing that aren't too out of the way or, well.. illegal. Lol With the crappie house up on lewisville flooded out the only carp hole I've got left is out in Denton and its so ate up with turtles its almost not worth the hour or more drive to get out there. I like to fish for carp, buffs and catfish with homemade doughbait and boilies, and in some cases just some good old fashioned sweetcorn so Im looking for places that these baits work well and are acceptable/legal. Is the crappie barge up on Ray Hubbard any good for carp or catfish?Also would Rowlett Creek be worth looking at right now? I haven't been fishing all year and now that me and the family are all settled in Im feelin that itch to get into something with some fight in it. Any advice and help are greatly appreciated.
I ain't lookin to trash anyone's stomping grounds, we clean up after ourselves well. So any fishin holes shared will be well taken care of.
Thanks again in advance guys.
Few things in life are better than watching the sunrise with a big carp or cat on the end of your line.
