Lakes & Reservoirs

South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Surface water temperatures are the low 70’s and the weeds and algae are thick. Trout fishing is slow to fair and bass fishing is fair to good depending upon the day. Lots of algae and the weed beds at the south end of the lake are thick. Best luck for both trout and bass has been early in the morning or late in the evening. Boaters should fish their presentations down at least 15 feet deep for trout. Shore anglers should look for shorelines that drop off quickly so they can get their presentation to deeper water. Flyrodders have been having luck with smaller flies such as hares ears, prince nymphs, black micro leeches and copper Johns in sizes 14 to 18 fished about 12 to 15 feet below an indicator. Wooly, seal and crystal buggers on a full sink line are also catching trout and bass, but mostly in the early morning. There is a damselfly hatch going on, so damselfly nymphs and adults should provide some action, though for trout you need to fish early in the morning. Bass have been caught along the dam using top water gear. At the south end, look for holes in the vegetation and fish soft plastics hooked weedless. Dark soft plastic baits in motor oil, guacamole, root beer and dark purple with some sparkles in them have been working early and late.
