The water clarity is ok....I could see bottom down to about 2' deep. I could see Bluegills which were all small, I may have spotted some tiny Green Sunfish, I saw a couple Largemouth Bass that were <13", I saw a snapping turtle. I also saw some scattered small Common Carp feeding along the edges, and some Bigmouth Buffalo feeding just below the surface. I spent most of the time trying to target the Carp and Buffalo. I couldn't get the Buffalo to strike. I need to improve my carp sight-fishing skills. I think I had one or two hits, but mis-timed the hookset and only managed to spook the fish.
I only landed two fish, and I did not see either of them before they hit the fly. They were both crappies that looked nearly identical to each other, and measured about 9.5".
So...This does not appear to be that great of a pond for fishing. There was almost no cover..even the bottom of the pond seem like clean clay...no algae or weeds. But because of the Carp and the Buffalo...I will definitely be going back to this pond throughout the summer on fairly calm days when I can sightfish for them.
