Where to look for carp on small rivers
The question is not idle. Because knowledge of location of carp, diet, time of day depends on your success.
Without a serious study of the behavior of the fish can sit around the clock with the newest gear and not see the bite. In life usually does: sitting on the banks of the two dozen fishermen, a really lucky one or two. Others, with envy looking at lucky, always ask: what’s your depth?, To catch that?»
If the losers are cultural people, sitting in their seats. And no, «cut off from all sides,» «lucky man» is. But he is ready to such turn of events — know when to leave the place. Usually bite then there is not all the same.
Weather conditions we have said on our website. Now it is the turn to talk about specific habitats carp seasonal.
Although the carp fish is crepuscular and feeds mainly in the early morning and late evening, but the spring feeding period, kotoryy1 is usually to spawning, this rule does not apply.
In April and sometimes in early may you can go fishing for 8 hours, and then 9. Best of all, if the weather is Sunny, clear. Boat is usually not needed, but waders will be needed — the water is high, and you need to get to fattening the fish. Favorite habitat of carp in the daytime — large shallow bays, densely overgrown with last year’s aquatic plants Very well, if there are differences in depth, pools with return flow. Optimal depth of fishing places up to 1 m. the Water is still muddy, but the large carp into small places is very careful, therefore, to approach him it is necessary, observing maximum ) silence Usually after catching one or two instances of the carp moves away. Fishing this very dynamic — you have to frequently change the place, so it makes no sense to bring more than one rod. Necessary, of course, and podsak.
The bite usually lasts up to 15 hours, rarely later. In the evening, when warmed in the sun the water begins to cool, the carp moves into the nearby depths and stops eating.
In General for carp and other heat-loving fish triggered a clear rule: the lower the water temperature, the lower the food activity.
If it is cold, cloudy weather, the carp comes out in shallow water and held in pits in the channel. Biting these days is usually poor. But you can try to catch it by donok on the pits using the feeder. You should choose not just deep space, and immediately adjacent to promising the shallow backwaters and bays.
Often a situation when cloudy weather abruptly gives way to Sunny and warm. The fish immediately rushes in the shallows, followed by fast moving and fishing. In my observation, fish, particularly carp, is very sensitive to early spring on solar radiation, are drawn to it after the winter gloom.
Was in my practice a funny episode. I was fishing in a quiet Creek, protected from the wind by the reeds. Small depth — about 1 m. the Weather is changeable: the sun has appeared and then disappeared. But interestingly, the bite was only ° when the sun’s rays illuminates the area of fishing. Cost to run against the clouds, the biting immediately stopped. And this was repeated several times.
This behavior is very typical in early spring and bleak. There is sun, it perfectly takes on the surface, cloudy, immediately disappears in the depth of the pond.
Having received the necessary charge by solar power, carp gradually turns to morning and evening diet.
Early in the morning before sunrise carp willingly attends a shallow overgrown coastal zone. Under favorable weather conditions (high atmospheric pressure, windless weather) carp is here to 4-5 hours Then it fades into a typical day of Parking — limits differences of depths, contaminated pits, designated with the reverse current. He loves to stand near the fallen trees, collapsed into the river boulders clay, turf. The nature of the seabed is also important. First carp prefers clay, clay-mud bottom, then silt and sand. Very rarely is PA the bare sand or rocks.
In the intense heat that often happens in the South of Russia (under high atmospheric pressure), carp not relegated to the pits even during the day, and hammered PA shallow water in tight thickets of reed, cane and other plants. In this weather carp feeding at night and early in the morning.
In rivers with low flow under the same weather conditions, sometimes it is almost on the surface. Day by reducing the pressure and, as a rule, the approach of inclement weather, immediately leaves the shallows and goes to the pit.
It should be noted that there is a small river, where the coastal vegetation is poorly developed. Here, as a rule, carp a little, as there are no convenient places for spawning and forage is insufficient.
Autumn carp feeds rarely and irregularly. In small rivers, where there are sufficient depths, sinking into productieve areas. If the form is residential, then again in the afternoon is a deep hole from the Pacific or back over, standing under the krutoyary, near the piers.
In good weather, the day can go in shallow water. Usually, the season of feeding activity from the carp ends in the southern rivers in late September-early October.
Immediately after freeze-up carp, like other fish goes to the shallow water, as it is the best oxygen condition. A prerequisite is the presence of a rich aquatic vegetation. Catch it must now only during the day, and the reason is simple — under the influence of sunlight, the plants produce oxygen, which attracts all the fish.
Night is the reverse process — the release of carbon dioxide. So at night the carp down, but he stuck around.
The appearance of the first snow on the young ice — shock for the inhabitants of shallow waters. Snow cuts off the plants from the healing light, the photosynthesis process stops, quick starts the process of withering away, rotting plants, which require additional oxygen. And its reserves under the ice and so small. Fish, carp in particular, leaves overgrown shallow water until spring.
But shallow water shallow water alike. There are areas where there is sparse reeds and cane. In such areas the processes of decay are mild and common carp in the long thaw occasionally comes here to feed.
Absolutely hopeless covered with ice and snow creeks, overgrown with pondweed, canadian, potbelly, etc.
Here the poor oxygen conditions, so carp does not go here under any circumstances. The only fish that can survive in such conditions, carp, and yet, perhaps, rotan.
