Action is really picking up on most of these. Try fall color leeches on Chesterfield Reservoir where algae bloom is nearly gone.  Use same color leeches on Daniels Reservoir, but prince and hare’s ear nymphs are working. A few callibaetis remain on Hawkins Reservoir.   Of course midge pupa under a strike indicator will work on all these when you find the taking depth.  Springfield Res. seems to be the slowest of the bunch, but action there will pick up as we move towards the end of the month.

That Chesterfield and Daniels reservoirs are now filling is good news for next year.  Using midge pupa patterns under an indicator is producing well in both places provided one can find the taking depth.   Weeds are starting to break up on Springfield Reservoir, so more open water is available there.  Midge pupa and small leech patterns will work there.

This “November weather” is just what we need to get things moving. Midge pupa patterns below a strike indicator will work just about everywhere as we cool of. So will small leech and scud patterns.

The weather is going to cool off next week, and this will be just the ticket for fishing to pick up on these places.   Right now Daniels Reservoir is the top producer with fish being taken on midge pupa below an indicator, but give things a bit of time, and other waters will be just as good.


Still Waters 9-21-09

Water is being stored in many of these including Chesterfield, Daniels, Hawkins, Twin Lakes, and Twenty-Four Mile reservoirs.  This bodes well for next year.   For all the above waters and for Springfiled as well, leeches in fall colors and midge pupa patterns below indicators are the best way for action.  One place we did not have much to report on is Treasureton Reservoir which is still in a recovery mode from the late winter fish kill of two years ago. Next year should be different as Treasureton should return to its record of being a great still water fishery.

Action will begin to pick up all over as we begin to cool.  Daniels Reservoir currently offers the best fishing. Try shallow areas such as the east shoreline and the upper end. Use midge pupa patterns with a strike indicator, or try small leech or BLM patterns trolled as slowly as possible.  When action picks up on other reservoirs, we will pass on information here.


Still Waters 9-07-09

Daniels Reservoir remains the best of these.  Midge pupa under a strike indicator is the best way to find it here.  Watch for all of these to improve later this month as we cool down.


Still Waters 9-02-09

Algae bloom has slowed fishing on Chesterfield Reservoir.  Action on Twenty-Four Mile, Springfield,  and Hawkins has also slowed.   Action is holding up well on Daniels Reservoir with good water extending above the dead trees.   Midging is the best bet, but small leech patterns and nymphs bring returns.  As we cool off later this month better days are coming.
