Fished Spinney Reservoir in the float tube yesterday May 24. Water is super low. Hand launched vessels only. About 20 other guys fly fishing from float tubes. We're in that period of time where the reservoir hasn't fully turned over, not too much for bug activity yet. There were a few callibaetis and chironomids on the water and some midge activity.

Fishing wasn't great. A few fish were taken on wolly buggers, slow stripped down deep. Other than that, midges and small mayfly patterns seemed to be working. The next few weeks should get going with the start of the callibaetis hatch.

Runoff has started, so we're a few weeks away from decent river/stream fishing now.
