I stocked 10 grass carp in my pond a month ago. WIth all the rain I had water flow into my pond and over the spillway - not a huge amount over but it did flow over.

I know bass typically hand tight but will carp or do they swim with the flow?

From what I have read GC are more likely to go with the flow than some other fish. I have had one large one that I know of go over the overflow.

Can you check in the grass for one stranded or remains? Or would it connect with other waters?
