Here are some nice videos on fly fishing for Carp, featuring our friend Brian Kimmel and Todd Moen. If you haven’t given carp a chance yet it is certainly worth a try, especially in those late summer months when some of our trout rivers are heating up.

Dry-fly fishing in Montana’s magnificent Big Sky country is perhaps the closest thing to heaven for most anglers. But during the summer of 2015, I went there and encountered sweltering temps, low water levels, and frequent river closures. Add to this obstacle the region’s tremendous number of summer wildfires, and it could have ended any chance of seeing a fish at all.

Fortunately, my longtime Gallatin Gateway friend and fly-fishing guide extraordinaire, Brian Kimmel, has a heart for Montana carp. Kimmel and Adipose Boatworks founder and co-owner, Tracy Allen, showed how great the carp action could be on the Missouri River near Helena, Montana. Kimmel’s extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for these giant, heat loving, bottom dwelling, big-bellied fish really comes through here.
