Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: On Thursday, the surface water temperatures were 55 to 57 degrees depending upon where you were at South Fork.. Fishing continues to improve with the warmer temperatures as aquatic insects start to hatch and the fish metabolism increases. Sherbet, rainbow, and Chartreuse PowerBait along with worms are what most anglers have been using, with the PowerBait appearing to catch more fish. Flyrodders have been having luck with smaller flies such as hares ears, prince nymphs, black micro leeches and copper Johns in sizes 16 and 18. Midge hatches are starting to improve and when these are present, anglers may try the usual chironomid patterns such as snow cones, frostbite chironomids and Yankee buzzers. Nice sized trout have been caught at the north end of the lake on either side of the dam. Trout fishing continues to be good from the main boat ramp cove to the dam on the east side of the lake as well as the last couple of coves on the west side before the spillway. Bass are showing up in the creel more as the water temperature approaches 60 degrees. Once it hits the magical 60 degree mark expect bass fishing to get good. Both smallmouth and largemouth are being caught on the east shore from the main boat ramp cove south to Tomera Cove and on the flats on the west side of the lake north of Jet Ski Beach. Black bass may not be kept until July 1st and must be returned to the water immediately upon catching. However, one wiper 15 inches or larger may be kept. The lake has been stocked a couple of times already with more than 20,000 fish and spring stocking should continue into May.
