Lake is at normal level and clear with some weed growth on the bottom, water temperature was 76 deg..Caught/released about an 8 lbs. Carp on my 4 wt fly pole, quite a battle!

Carp on a fly would be a blast. Nice fish.

Definitely well over 8 pounds! Congratulations! I still have not caught a grass carp on a fly. They behave totally different, and eat different things than the common carp.

Not many grass carp lakes near me. Very cool. Well done landing the beast! That belly is no joke.
