Default Fishing From Shore

Wasn't sure where exactly to put this so please move it if desired and accept my apologies in advance.

First, I have been a spinning/baitcaster fisherman for the past 10 years or so. Last year a friend put a fly rod in my hand and we hit the river. It was some of the best fishing I've ever had. A few months ago I injured my knee and wading the rivers is too much for me at this point. Missing that feeling of a fish tugging on the end of my fly rod I've been thinking about taking the fly rod and applying to where I can fish - lakes and ponds.

I fish 90% of the time from shore. Due you think it would be worthwhile to pursue fishing lakes and ponds from shore with a fly rod? Would a fly rod be as productive as a spinning rod from shore? I would be in pursuit of the usual - LM/SM Bass, Bluegill, etc - the usual suspects you would find in a pond/lake.

Thank you for any advice you can give and please excuse my ignorance on the subject.
