Dark Red Quill
The Dark Red Quill Spinner fall is not usually a big deal. However, as I have often said, if
spinners are falling there is one thing for sure - the trout will eat them. If you don't have
an imitation of them you will probably wish you did. They are thought not to be important
because they don't usually occur in heavy concentrations.
The spinners fall over the same water they hatch from, that is the calmer pockets and
slower water immediately adjacent to the fast water in pocket water streams. The spent
spinners will collect downstream of riffles and runs in the slow moving water.
Use an upstream or an up and across approach and fish the slower moving areas of the
pocket water. These are often very small places. The water downstream below riffles and
runs and current eddies where the spinners collect may produce. You may need to use a
downstream or down and across presentation for those found in smoother water. This is
often very shallow water, so make sure you don't spook the trout that may be feeding on
the spent spinners.
