Hey Everyone,
This weekend I'll be testing a theoretical honey hole (What does that mean?) in the Eagle Creek Reservoir. If it turns out to be as good as I hope, I will sound the horn on this thread. Good luck!

Well, that new spot was no good, at least it wasn't last night. we caught a small channel cat and of course a snapping turtle! I fished where Fishback Creek enters the Reservoir, there are so many shiners around there that you can feel them hitting the hull of the boat. Oh well, we'll keep at it!

Went out last night and fished the rip rap in front of the dam, no luck. Went over to the yacht club, no luck. Even tried around some big downed trees, still no luck. Even though it was very cool last night, the water temps are in the lower 80's and there hasn't been any rain to put in some O2. It seems the flatties are still sleeping in Eagle Creek, I'll keep you all posted.

my theory is watch for the thermal cline on the old depth finder and drift depths that come just about 3 feet below the thermalcline to 3 feet above the thermal cline. Drift drift and more drift. remember dont waist time on dead water fisth the holes, humps and and channel. DRIFT,DRIFT,AND DRIFT. ure numbers will double at minimum. Sure are still some slow nights but few and far between

Thanks for the information Skippie. I have never drift fished before, and it seems like many people have great luck using the technique, so I will definitely give it a try. It will be fun trying something new, thanks again, I let you know how it goes.
