Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

We're now in that strong Callibaetis window, and fishing has been relatively consistent day to day. Weed beds are now grown and thats where you will find many of the fish as thats where the majority fo the bug activity will occur. Be sure to have options in the Chironomid, Caddis and Damsel lifecycles as well as those will be key players as we move through the Summer window.

 

 

Lake Conditions

 Reservoir is full, and clarity is good.

Lake Level: Full

Clarity: Clear 

 

Suggested Methods

 As Callibaetis activity ramps up, be sure that your prepared with all lifecycle. Static indicator rigs will be your go-to, but you'll need to change depth on the fly depending on conditions and where fish are hanging. Leeches will continue to be in play either fished static or stripped on an intermediate/ sink tip line. Remember to fish heavy tippet...3/4x...these fish are hot!
