Still Waters 9-18-15

We have not said much recently here, so let’s get caught up a bit. Water is very low at Chesterfield Reservoir, but fish are hitting leech and damselfly nymph patterns. It’s easier to launch flotation devices than boats there. Daniels Reservoir is offering good fishing with the same patterns because water is in good shape thanks to the conservation pool. Springfield Reservoir offers good fishing for those folks concentrating on the “donut holes,”  that is the spring holes between the weed beds. Try scud, damselfly nymph, damselfly adult, and midge life cycle patterns.  Sand Creek Ponds still fishes well for those presenting speckled dun life cycle patterns. Try a soft hackled patterns (ie, partridge & orange) in size 14 or 12 with a slow retrieve, just under the surface and close to rising fish. Evenings and late afternoons seem best.  Forget about the Harriman Fish Pond until next year or later. Looks like the holdovers will be few & far between.
