Daniels Reservoir, even though water is low, remains a good bet for fishing. Slowly retrieved leech  and streamer patterns on an intermediate line work well but, but midge patterns under an indicator seem best.  Fishing on Springfield Reservoir is picking up a bit ( midge pupa also traditional nymph patterns under an indicator), but weeds remain in enough quantity to limit wet fly fishing in shallower water.  Twenty-Four Mile Reservoir is filling, so give it several days for fishing to pick up using same techniques as on Daniels Reservoir.  Chesterfield Reservoir  also needs some cooler weather to bring water temps down to spread fish out.  Want to catch a grayling? Horseshoe Lake off the Cave Falls Road is the place to do it. They are small (up to 12-13″), pretty, and not as numerous as the rainbow trout present. You will need a non-motorized boat or flotation device to get out in front of the lily pads to present soft hackle, midge and speckled dun life cycle patterns.
