    I'm seeing if I can get a little help if possible. I recently moved to the Rochester area, and I am having a little trouble finding water that is wade-able that I can fly fish for carp. I'm not looking for your honey holes or what you use, I'm just looking for a creek/river I can go explore after work. Any help is appreciated and happy fishing!

    I have to think the Clinton has Carp in it. If you find a Mulberry tree that overhangs the river, some dark-purple yarn-flies work great when the berries are dropping. ;)

    Most streams around you probably have carp in them at some point.

    Do a search on "carp fishing" and you will find a lot of info. Most of what you are looking for is in the Warm Water forum.
