Bluegill, especially, will throw caution to the wind when there is windy chop on the water and insects blowing in like mad. Any ant imitation will do well, but don't go too small, because bluegill really have a strong suck off the surface, and they will take a size 26 ant right into the back of their throat. Keep the sizes around 18 for the ants, depending on how big the gills are that you're catching.
Micro streamers, small muddlers minnows, and micky finns work very well for bluegill in sizes 10,12,14, and 16. Woolly buggers in the same sizes always get bluegill worked up. In deeper waters use some sinking line to get down to the bigger fish laying just off a shallow flat.
Dry fly fishing for bluegills is often quite amazing, as there really needs to be no hatch at all for bluegills to attack something on the surface. Try a Royal coachman as a generic dry in sizes 12,14, and 16. If there are white moths in your area, a light cahill will do the trick in a size 12 or 14. Chernobol ants, crickets, and grasshoppers work well too, but stay with the smaller sizes because sometimes these flies are over tied with way too much material: some people like to make them like an abrams tank and the bluegills have quite a time trying to get their jaws around it.
