Season begins

In our area, everyone is waiting for the rise of crucian carp from the Volga. Meanwhile, fishermen checking Malaya Kokshaga for raising this crucian carp, in fact, every day, fall on a good bite of ides and quite large roaches. Moreover, judging by the reports, they catch it completely without bait and on the most ordinary worm. Someone finds his fish right in the city, on a reservoir dug in the Kokshagi riverbed. Mostly roach and less common scavengers are found. And more recently, little carpets desperately pecked. Someone caught and let go, while someone persistently “pulled” dozens of them and put them in a bag. It turned out that last fall these bastards were released into the Malaya Kokshaga river. But, either there was little information, or simply many elderly fishermen who were not at odds with the computer, naturally did not go to the local forum and did not know about this act of releasing juveniles into the river. And in the newspapers, local journalists do not cover such a trifle. More in use are chernukha and the golem bytovuha, as on our central television. Only the “112” program, which is on REN TV, while watching it gives the impression that the journalists of this program are only busy digging in moral trash and scamming everything that smells bad on the pages of their vile television program.

But back to fishing
On the Volga, lovers of feeder are also not bored. There, the water level is regulated by the gates of the hydroelectric power station and therefore there are a lot of fishing spots now. Caught mainly by scavengers, silver bream, a rather large roach. At night, an average and rather large burbot comes across bottom gear.

The same on the forest and clean river Ileti. Already quite efficiently and successfully catch large roach. Other “white” fish come across.

On some ponds, during almost summer heat, crucian carp already started to peck. But then the snowflakes spun, and then the snow fell almost winter-like. The wind howled, and it became sadly bored from this unexpected return of winter. But the very next morning the morning opened bright and quiet. It was thought, well, spring is again in the yard. And he stuck his nose out – already burned with frost. It’s clear, and the sun is shining, but it freezes seriously. And my experiment with the early planting of potatoes on the beds near the house on such a morning is under threat. No matter how frozen the potato. True, in advance he covered the experimental plot with planted potatoes with a double layer of spunbond. Maybe it will survive difficult times?

In Malaya Kokshaga, above the city, a mixed-caliber “white fish” also began to peck in the whirlpools: roach, scavengers, chubs, roaches, breeds, rather large ruffs, and burbots come across at night. It seemed that he was about to stop taking the cold-loving night predator. Indeed, in the courtyard the bright sun shines and burns like a summer. The water is warming up. But after the April snowfall, everything returned to normal. It was frosty in the morning and no better in the afternoon. An icy wind blows, and in the evening again there were signs of an approaching frosty night with a north wind. If this situation lasts, then burbot fishing can remain relevant for another week. But then the rise of the crucian carp is clearly delayed. The main thing is to get warmer by the May holidays. We are going fishing with an overnight stay, waiting for the rise of the crucian carp. I would not want to miss the time this year with this fascinating catch of seasoned Volga crucian carp. Last year, he walked in miserable portions. And only fishermen who were free from worries, having the opportunity to come to the river every day, caught something, although there were no such catches as in the good old days.
