    Default Where do the fish go when they're letting water out of the dam?

    Just got back from a weeks trip to Dierks. Very tough fishing for everybody staying at the campground. Seemed to be several guys who have fished the lake for years not catching much too , 1 to 5 dinks. So how do the crappie eat for months when they let water out?

    I find on some lakes with livescope they suspend out in the open over deep water . Then we hunt them down and snipe them one at a time with a jig and a pole .

    Your welcome . One flood control lake I fish I was catching them with it going over the dam . All the way down to normal level. Big ones were suspended in open water . With limits of fat girls about every trip !

    el Rojo i would not waste time on those . I look out in front 30' or more and look for big ones . Once you learn to read the livescope you can judge the size . I seldom get any closer than 20' and at times look out 40' and pitch/flip a jig to them at 30' if they are spooky . Hold a jig on their nose but try not to bump them . I like running the grid to help put it right on them and judge size but compared to jig you can do that too .
