Still Water

Jimmy's All Seasons Angler / Still Water (Page 30)

Still Waters 11/29

Fishing is going great guns on Daniels, Chesterfield, and Springfield reservoirs.  When mud remains frozen, Twenty-Four Mile can be fished. Leech patterns in fall colors, small soft hackled streamers and midge pupa patterns under indicators are all taking fish. None of these have iced over to date, but when we hear that this has happened, we will post that info here.

Freeze-up may be coming soon to such as C-field, Daniels and 24-Mile, so get out and enjoy them now as they are fishing really well.  Leach patterns in fall colors and intermediate lines as well as midge life cycle patterns are the ticket on all of these.

Chesterfield, Daniels, and Springfield reservoirs are the best of these. All are fishing very well. Midge life cycle, scud, streamer and woolly bugger patterns produce on each. Getting to Daniels Res. from the north may become difficult soon as the Dairy Creek road going southwest from Hawkins Reservoir traverses some high country. There is some fishing left in Hawkins Res. close to the dam.  Try woolly bugger types.

No change with respect to the great fishing success and taking strategy on Chesterfield and Daniels reservoirs. Springfield is coming on with the breakup of weeds. Now wooly bugger types in fall colors will be almost as effective there as presenting midge pupa patterns.

Chesterfield and Daniels reservoirs are the stars of the show here. Use leech patterns in fall colors and midge life cycle patterns for action. Springfield Res. is coming on, too. Same kind of flies, and fish open water around weed beds.

Chesterfield Res. is coming on strong to share the spotlight with Daniels Res. Don’t overlook Springfield: it is also producing. Use fall color leeches on all these. And midge pupa under indicators will also produce on each of these. Hawkins and Twenty-four Mile suffer from draw-down, so mud flats are in your way of getting to water on each.

Chesterfield continues to improve, and Daniels remains the stalwart excellent fishery whether you prefer such as presenting leech and streamer patterns or midge pupa under an indicator. There are also fish sipping midges at the surface there.  Springfield is coming on as we advance into fall, and like Daniels a variety of presentations offer success.

Most reservoirs are fishing very well, thank you. Action at Chesterfield has picked up since we have cooled off. Fall color (halloweens, purple, brown or olive mohair, dark crystal buggers, green apple, bead head peacock) leeches presented on intermediate lines are very effective here as well as on Daniels, Springfield and Twenty-four (be careful when traversing the mud flats) Mile Reservoirs. Springfield features the best midge fishing, and even Hawkins, low as it is, is producing fish for those presenting leech patterns.
