The Wild Carp Classic and the Ed French Open (formerly the Wild Carp Fall Qualifier) have produced some amazing results since their inception in 2010. These events take place annually in May and October--a time when carp are bulking up at the end/beginning of winter--and produce several gorgeous 30+ lb beauties every time. With an above average catch rate and many large specimen common and mirror carp (up to 40 lb) the norm, professional carp anglers regard the Seneca River as one of North America's premiere venues.
