Still Waters 8-22-15

The cooler mornings and evenings are just the ticket for keeping these waters cool enough for fish not only to remain active, but to have a better chance of survival when subject to catch and release. This really is the case for shallow water bodies such as Sand Creek Ponds #2 and #4. Pond 4 is fishing well for those folks presenting speckled dun life cycle patterns, with evenings being a great time to be on the water.  The Trude Springs area of Island Park Reservoir continues to produce for those  offering midge pupa patterns at depth. To the southeast, Daniels Reservoir seems to be the best bet. Although speckled dun emergences there are sparse compared to such as Sand Creek Ponds, their life cycle patterns are working well. Want to try a different still water?   Snow Creek Pond, also known as Teardrop Lake, has holdover rainbows. It’s ideal for flotation devices. Get there by taking the Snow Creek Road off the Fish Creek Road which leaves at Warm River Campground. Dry damselfly patterns seem to be producing well on both Chesterfield and Springfield Reservoir.  Water in Chesterfield Reservoir has dropped considerably, but enough remains for ‘bows at moderate sizes to provide good fishing.
