Heck yes, that is a very good way to catch them, because the BG tend to scatter this time of the year. Find the depth they are at and make sure your drift stays in that depth. The bite can be light so keep a tight line and when you feel the slightest resistance rise up with the rod tip.

I like to find them with conventional tackle and then switch to  a flyrod with a sinking line once they are located, because for me the flyrod is the way to go. The water I fish in is deep and I  have learned by experince to look for 20 ft. of water and start fishing.

You ask a good question.

 

 

So the fly rod your useing for a lite jigging rod it sounds like . I try to use a 6'6" rod or longer some days they bite so lite you have to hang on to feel the bite other days i just fish it dead line and no problem setting the hook. I noticed that the crappies were comming of in a fast drift though because of the liteness of hooking in there mouth though. My depth lately has been 26 to 33 feet
Yes i use a 6' 6" myself smallest egg sinker the store sells, small swivel and a size 10 circle hook, then drop the line over the boat to the bottom reel up a few feet, and wait.
