South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 20-Aug-17
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: The surface water temperatures have climbed into the mid to high 70’s and trout fishing has slowed considerably due to this. Even boaters don’t seem to be having a lot of luck for trout. The trout being caught are averaging between 13 and 17 inches with an occasional 20 inch fish. If fishing from a boat, use a deep diving presentation to get your terminal tackle to between 15 and 20 feet deep for trout. Some trout are being caught in the river above the reservoir using hopper patterns. Black bass are moving into vegetation at the south end of the lake and onto structure along shorelines. Some smallmouth and largemouth bass have moved into the river above the causeway. There are special regulations in the river including single barbless hooks, so make sure to read the fishing proclamation for this water before fishing here. Mayflies and damselflies are hatching, so flies such as pheasant tail nymphs, gold ribbed hares ears, pale morning duns, blue winged olives (BWO’s) and other mayfly as well as damselfly imitations should be used. Damselflies should be fished near vegetation and mayflies may be fished on more open water. There is road construction south of the state park headquarters so those wanting to access the west side of the lake will need to go in through Twin Bridges. Expect this to continue into October.
