Baby buffalo carp are thick by Edgewater park creek too.  The pelicans are gorging themselves with them there but it hardly makes a dent.  If there numbers are indicative of larger versions then commercial fishing may be necessary.  It is ridiculous how many there are in the creek there.  More fish than water.

Thick?  That would be an understatement.  However all i saw were 2-6 inches long.  And like i said there were hundreds of thousands of them.  I am legit concerned.

Are they in there thick? Any size to them? Would love to get some bowfishing in! I'll bring some buddies!

I dont think we could put a dent in them.  Not with conventional weapons.  Ive spoken with a couple friends of mine along with personal experience of my own and i think the buffalo cwrp are becoming a very serious problem.  Those same swarms are all over the lake.  I hate to say it but the dnr may have to intervene somehow

Don't know if it's normal but if we all work together as a team, we could eliminate those things. No daily bag limit. Time to start feeding cats from all over Wisconsin.

Is the ammount of baby buffalo carp normal?  I couldnt even cast.  Millions.  Seems like an epidemic...

I would agree, but from what I understand these fish don't actually successfully reproduce in this stretch of the river and most die off anyways during the summer months. Most of the fish in there are just wash downs from the lake, hence the reason they have the 5 at 15" year round compared to the 3 at 18" with the closed season on the lake.

i was there last night and did ok. left with 3 eyes. the locals are really rude if they dont know you. i personally think the dams rules need to be changed so you have to stay back 200 ft. its bothersome that you can target these fish while they are spawning. most places would have this as a fish refuge.
