Typically you will want to impart some action to your flies when fishing stillwaters, but how much and what type of movement will depend on what it is your trying to imitate, water temperature, and light conditions, even then there are often exceptions to the rule.
If you enjoy reading I would recommend 'Fishing stillwaters for trophy Trout' by Denny Rickards. The man has pretty much became the stillwater Guru and catches many massive trout.
Also you can listen to a great interview with Denny (about 1.5 hrs long) at this sight, add this sight to your favorites as they interview many well known fly fishing Guru's from around the country.
