For the "lower" oomycetes, Sparrow's Aquatic Phycomycetes is a starting 
point.  There are good keys/treatments of Achlya (late 60s) by 
William Scott, and Saprolegnia by Roland Seymour in 1970 or 71, Nova 

If these leads aren't enough I'll e-mail my lab and have them check my 
bookshelf. (I am on sabbatical currently and havent worked much on the 
watermolds in about 3 or 4 years)
