    Where to Look for Carp in a River?

    Where to Look for Carp in a River?

    In today's world, most carp anglers fish on still waters, and they tend to avoid rivers based on stereotypes that carp are hard to come by in rivers, or even that catching a carp in a river is a miracle. It's common knowledge that fishing in still waters is generally easier than in flowing waters, but this doesn't mean that there are no carp in rivers. You just have to find them...

    When looking for carp in a river, we need to pay attention to several characteristic "hotspots". Below are a few of them:

    Shallow River Areas

    Carps often frequent very shallow places where they search for food. They are most often found in such places with the arrival of spring because life awakens earliest in shallow water. The water in these areas warms up more quickly and there is already more food than in the deep, cold water.

    Along the River Banks

    In most rivers, carps also like to stay along the banks, especially in places where it is deep enough to hide from the current and predators. They usually seek areas with dense vegetation along the bank or regions with larger depressions or submerged trees that can serve as hiding spots.

    Areas with Aquatic Vegetation

    Carps love to feed on and around aquatic vegetation. In such places, there is usually a lot of food, so it's worth looking for areas covered with dense vegetation, such as reeds, water lilies, or underwater meadows.

    Areas with Water Current

    Carps enjoy areas with a gentle water current because, in such places, especially in summer, the water is somewhat cooler and therefore more oxygenated. In river sections with stronger currents or stronger water flow, often during elevated water levels, a lot of "food" in the form of small insects is carried by the current, which washes out from the banks, plants, and the riverbed, providing fish with natural food. It's worth looking for places where the water current is slightly faster or where eddies form, which can attract carps. A very good spot is known as a "braid," which is where calm and flowing water meet. At such a place on the water surface, we can notice characteristic rippling and increased water movement.

    As for sounding or searching for such places, I personally use two useful items. I'm referring to the echosounder Deeper Sonar CHIRP+ 2 and the bottom-probing stick Trakker Prodding Stick V2.

    It's important to remember that every river is different. It's best to spend some time getting to know a particular place to familiarize yourself with the river conditions and the fish's habits. We may not get good results right away, but if we dedicate enough time to observation and baiting, the results will surely come sooner or later.
