Carp and beetles

Fished below Canonsburg Lake at the spillway yesterday. Figured I might get into some bass and threw some buggers and stripped and jerked them around for awhile- no luck.

Put on a Royal Coachman and caught several sunnies. Noticed some big carp surfacing- kinda rolling the surface. Did'nt really think the carp were rising but I guess they were. As soon as I switched to a beetle- WHAM and about 3 seconds later I was broke off by a big carp on my 4x. I switch to 1x and missed 1 a bit later and then that was it.

Did'nt expect to hook into a carp on top. Based on all the bait containers and the 15 people that had come and gone during the time I was there they must get pummeled. I was thinking maybe they are more selective and starting taking things on top?? Is this off base?

I flyfish because I enjoy it.

An old friend used to always catch em on top. It's something that people don't try often, but they will hit. I think your theory is good.
