G'day, ok this might be a difficult question because I'm in Oz so it might be different in other parts of the world. Winter has ended & spring is here so the spawning run is set to start. I went down to my regular hunting grounds to see what it was like. Creek levels were higher than usual due to winter rain but nothing to extreme & didn't see a single fish. Now just to give you all a bit of background, I fish along a creek that is 20ft wide, no lakes, I shoot of the bank with the water coming from the hills & going down to the sea. So the question is where do the carp spawn? Do they spawn where they are? Or move up stream? They wouldn't go down because 5miles down stream it goes into brackish water then salt or are the fish infront of me & I just can't see them because of the water height level?
