Lakes & Reservoirs

South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 09-Jul-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Surface water temps in the morning are in the mid 60’s but climb to the 70’s by mid afternoon. With daytime highs expected to range from in the mid to high 90’s, the water is only going to get warmer and the weeds are coming on fast now. Fishing has been good for trout, fair to good for bass and wipers. Catfish are showing up in the creel including a few trophy fish that appear to be coming in around 10 lbs and above. Anglers appear to be having good luck around most of the lake for trout, though by mid morning the trout have moved offshore to deeper water. For trout, fluorescent orange or chartreuse seem to be the preferred colors of PowerBait. Fishing for trout is still good, and fly fishermen have had success for two to five pound trout with brown and olive wooly buggers as well as olive seal buggers and olive crystal buggers on the east and south ends of the lake. Damsel flies are hatching so damselfly nymphs are most definitely an option along weed beds. Wipers are being caught in a bit deeper water, no longer in the real shallow stuff. As of July 1, you may keep one black bass 15” or longer.
