Jeff Cooper posted this update about Spinney Reservoir on the Angler's Covey Forum: "I fished Spinney from the bellyboat on Sunday, July 8, from 6:30 a.m. until about 2:00. I fished about 50 to 150 yards out from shore at the first big parking lot. It was a little slow, but I managed to catch fish consistently through the day. The top producers were callibaetis nymphs of any style in about a size 16 and small woolly buggers. I didn't get any action on damsels or chironimids. The wind behaved all day long and I was treated to impressive storm clouds in all directions. It seemed as if the reservoir was the doughnut hole of sunshine in the entire cloudy region. Eventually the clouds and lightning got a little too close for my tastes and I decided to get off the water. As I was hauling my gear back to the truck, a ten year old kid steps up with his Zebco and a Kastmaster and hauls in a fat 24 inch rainbow on his third cast from shore; I knew it was time to leave then."
