The carp are biting

Yesterday I came across these dudes fishing in the Glendale Narrows ’round noontime, just as they each caught a large carp within seconds of each other.

Here’s Jon and Dean with their carp “Double Header,” around 4-5 lbs. each.

Releasing the carp back into the River, as is these dudes’ practice…

  3. Good fishing is where you’re at.

  4. My son had been enjoying fishing in the river recently until the Park Rangers kicked him and my husband out saying it wasn’t allowed. Any info on that? I’d sure love it if he could return to the river for his fishing jones. We’ve been wanting to start an L.A. River Anglers club.

  5. Don’t let the park rangers stop you from enjoying the LA River, it’s not a park. The Atwater Fish and Game Club is already happening.
