    I would start looking at the nearest creek or river channel and follow it zig zagging back and forth going towards deeper water. It is a common theory that when water drops the survival instinct is for fish to go deep so they are not trapped in a pool of water that might dry up.

    I have found steeper banks, close to where they were feeding, Afish on a steep bank moves up and down, fish on flatswill have to move in and out.

    I know when ever you are fishing below a dam and they shut down some of the gates, you might as well go home.

    Just what healthy drink said! When water is being let out of resevoirs they think they are losing water ground I believe. Under the spillway/dam is a good option at these times but usually too crowded for me.
