Springfield is a convenient place to fish this time of year. Of all local reservoirs roads to it are most likely in good condition , and it does not ice over until late December or early January. Some years it never ices over completely. Springfield was recently stocked with cookie cutter ‘bows running 14-18″. They are not the prettiest fish in the world, nor are they real vigorous, but they are eager. Try small streamers, small prince nymphs with and without beads, small fly rod jigs, midge pupa under an indicator, scud patterns, or woolly buggers.
