Fly Fishing Ohio Carp

Just like sight fishing saltwater.....but inland.

Mad River Outfitters and Ohio Fly Fishing Guides offers a full, professional guide service for Carp here right here in Ohio. The closest thing to saltwater "sight fishing" you will find...without heading to the coast.

From the shores of Lake Erie through Columbus and down to the Ohio River, common carp are in a majority of Ohio’s waters. Originally found in China and Europe, carp were stocked nationwide in the 1900s; thus, they are considered to be an exotic species. However, despite numerous attempts to eliminate them, carp have survived due to their tolerance for a variety of environmental conditions. Despite their appearance, size and shape, these large fish are related to the minnows and love to feed on Ohio mulberries.

We are proud to offer a complete fly fishing guide service for Carp in a variety of waters in Central Ohio including the waters that are featured in the "Carpin" video and the famous Walker's Cay Carp Episode.
