It was a calm day at Spinney Reservoir today! Almost too calm. The wind blew very little through out the day, and no wind can make the fish a little picky. Light waves make the fish feel calm under the water and also give your flies a bit of movement. Whenever the breeze picked up a bit, Ricky and I would get the fish to eat. Chironomids and Eggs are still the main flies the fish are chowing on. We picked a few fish up on streamers, but not enough to really hold my attention. Lots of nice fish in the lake this year. Everything from 16-22″!
Fish the drop offs and areas where the depth changes rapidly. The lake is clearing quickly. The bays I was fishing last week are now almost gin clear. The water is still very cold and the fishing is a bit slow in the mornings. We received the majority of our bites during the middle of the day. Saw a lot more midges today as well. Even some larger ones in the #16-18 size range. It won’t be long no before the fish are chowing like crazy on them!
