Still Waters 8-23-14

The cool, wet weather we currently have is just what is needed to bring still water fishing back to good times. Water levels are down in most reservoirs, so shallow water benefits the most.  Midge pupa patterns under an indicator are working well, for example, on deeper parts of Daniels Reservoir. Deep is where the coolest water is, anyway. Another tip: if damselflies are in the air, that means they are still emerging, so  be sure to have nymph and adult patterns in that fly box. Such has been the case with Springfield Reservoir where fishing wet or dry damselfly and speckled dun patterns in the channels around weed beds and around submerged springs has been productive this summer.
