Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Congratulations to Stacey Redick who caught a very nice 12 lb. channel catfish on Monday. Surface water temperatures have dropped into the low to mid 50’s, depending upon where on the lake you are and time of day. The south end of the lake has a lot of floating debris from the recent rain as well as the die off of weeds. Fishing has been slow to fair here, but as the water temperatures start to decline with the longer, cooler nights, expect trout fishing to pick up. The trout being caught are averaging between 13 and 17 inches with an occasional 20 inch fish. With the colder weather fly rodders should start changing tactics. As the weed beds start to die off, fish leech and scud patterns off the edges of the weed beds. Other flies to try include hares ears, scuds, copper Johns, prince nymphs, damsel nymphs, blood midges and of course wooly, crystal and seal buggers. Bass fishing is also slowing down, but what it lacks in numbers it makes up for in size as large bass are on the prowl fattening up for winter. Bass anglers should be targeting south facing shorelines where the sun will have the most exposure heating up the water. The road construction paralleling the lake has been completed and the road is now open.
