Stillwater 5-4-16

Fishing is starting to pick up on all area reservoirs open to fishing. Daniels, Chesterfield, Springfield, Hawkins, etc…. Most good fishing has been on indicators fishing with Chironomids in the deeper water. Focus on water around the 10-20 ft range, start on the bottom and work your way up from there. Fish will often be suspended this time of year to intercept chironomid pupa on their way to the surface. Patterns like the chromie size 12-14, black sally 12-14, summer duck pupa 12-14, and the bungie buzzers in 12 have been effective. Leech fisherman are still finding some action fishing shallow early and late and out deep during the day. Use an intermediate in the shallow stuff and a type III out in the deeper water. Any dark leech patterns should produce well. Fishing should only continue to improve as the water warms up so be sure to check back often for reports.
