I will be doing some camping Sunday and Monday and was wondering if there would still be any potential bank spots for carp on the fly rod. I know Ray Roberts has risen several feet because of the rain. Would there be any spots below the dam even? Also, if you guys know of any good spots for any other species, that would be great too!

I used to take my sons to the State Park (Isle du Bois?) and they would fish for (and catch) carp and catfish by wading from the shore as close to the swimming beach as they could get without messing with the swimmers. They used a homemade carp bait consisting of some kind of cereal and Big Red soda, which did not smell awful like catfish baits. I think the fish were attracted to whatever food the swimmers were losing in the water. They got the idea of fishing there after seeing some catfish snag a couple potato chips from some kid that dropped them in the water in the swimming area. Seems like they caught some nice carp just about every time we went there, which was usually in the summer.

If your looking to sight cast to carp you might find some in the backs of flooded coves - if the water is clear enough to see them. It will be real tough though because of the sticks and grass and debris in the water.
