Barragem can get quite deep and the steep banks often end into several meters of water straight away. In deep water the best choice to catch black bass are sunken patterns.
The presence of pasturing fry is of course a game changer and one can see black's attack even in this condition of water. Mind that the water level can change considerably from year to year or from season
to season, which can influence the fishing with floating poppers. Despite steep banks, at times there are large platforms of shallow water, extending
from ten to hundred meters. These areas with lower bottom are good place to search the Black using floating flies.
