    First chance to drift/slow-troll Dillon in 3 weeks. Best day yet: 32 channels caught and released between 9am and 5pm. Biggest 9# with avg of 3.4#. One 6.5# carp on flyrod out in middle of lake. Carp were up on surface fapparently feeding in small shad. Carp took a white/silver floating streamer type fly.

    One head from a 12' sucker took 6 or 7 of the cats!!

    Saw Ben Noll and a buddy out drifting also.

    Hey TomH,

    It was good to see ya back on Dillion Drifting.Randy and I only fished two hours and ten minutes but we were fortunate enough to boat 21 before we left.Our latgest was about 6 pounds.Most were the usual 2-1/2 to 4 pounders.I was at Cabelas yesterday and bought a digital scale that will weighs up to fifty pounds so I won't have to guestimate anymore.Hopefully,when I weigh a fish I won't have it hanging over the side of the boat so when it flops it won't take my scale with it like the last one did.Good fishing and be safe.BN
