Mill Creek

Mill Creek Lake, Canton, Texas…This is the home of The American Carp Society's first officially sanctioned ‘Bow-Fish free’ Trophy Carp Lake in the USA. It is also the location for our annual 'Social' event and is open to members from all States in the USA as an opportunity to get together, meet each other, share experiences and spend some time learning more about our quarry… while pursuing some truly special fish in a pristine, unspoiled and protected Trophy Carp Lake.

The ‘Social’ includes education, social dinners, slideshows, unique give - aways and discussion on our upcoming projects and events throughout the USA as well as a 3 day continuous Angling event in the great City of Canton.

The 'Mill Creek Social’ is held each year in the fall and is limited to a set number of Anglers.

The Mill Creek event was an awesome opportunity to fish with like minded individuals and promote the sport we all love with a huge milestone to celebrate, a truly bow fishing free water with an immaculate stock of beautiful carp. The event and US carp fishing in general is how I remember carp fishing when I first started in the U.K. 18 years ago, the fish are wilder, the waters more untamed and the self entitlement to catch big fish just doesn’t exist, instead you work hard for it, and enjoy the rewards even more….Thank You!
