As far as clarity I would not be too concerned, they will find it. Their senses are so tuned in that having coloured water will most likely help conceal your end tackle. It may indicate more of a a silty bottom which may make you want to think more about your end tackle. Maybe longer hook links, helicopter rigs or a chod rig, maybe also lighter leads.

I would focus on the location where your fishing, features and what the bottom of the lake is like. Hard, silty, debris etc.- you will get them eventually. May also be worth thinking about the bait you are using as far as time of the year.

+1 what carpskunker said. Carp make the water murky with their feeding habits. Since your state allows corn for bait, I would stick with it. Skip the garbanzo beans. Just open a can or two and toss half of what you open into the area you plan to fish. When you start catching, set the hook on the fish and walk left or right a decent amount of yards....like 10 to 20 or more and play the fish to your net there out of and away from your swim. Release and walk back to your swim to cast again. This technique works to keep the hooked carp from spooking and alerting the interested feeders. I almost always have to wait the " obligatory" first hour before the catching starts in my waters. No corn allowed in Utah. Use VERY good quality hooks like Owner or equal. Good luck.
