Lock 8 sight fishing

After exploring Violette's Lock on Sunday, I used the last hour or so of daylight to check out Lock 8 again. The water got pretty muddy, but there were still a few sections that were easily sight fished. I ended up landing one small carp around 2 pounds, and broke off a roughly 5 lb carp after he made a quick dive into some logs after being hooked. The light was low enough and casting crazy shadows that I was pretty limited in which sections I could even see fish. There were a few areas where I could catch a glimpse of a tail or see the silt plumes, but couldn't stick a fish.
