Still Waters 8-27-13

With low, warm conditions most still waters are weeding up.   So look for channels in the weeds on where to concentrate your efforts.  If you see adult damsels lighting on the water for egg laying or breeding purposes (and rising fish), that’s a “no brainer” on what to use.  Just waiting for a fish to take a dry damsel adult pattern can be about as interesting as presenting a  mayfly dun pattern on a stream.  Right now Springfield Reservoir is a good candidate for trying this. Look for the channels through the weed beds. Get off to the side of one (never locate on top of a channel), and put that dry damsel on its surface.  We have dry damsel patterns here in the shop, the right tackle for presenting them, and ideas on fishing still waters this time of year. Stop by or get in touch for any of these!
