Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: With the water temperatures dropping into the mid 60’s and the recent rains putting some colder water in at the south end of the lake, expect to see the weeds pulling back over the next couple of weeks. Trout fishing is starting to pick up a bit and with the full moon this weekend, expect slow fishing in the middle of the day and fair to good fishing first thing in the morning or right at dusk. One local angler reported good fishing for trout just south of the buoy line in six to eight feet of water using a brown and black verigated wooly bugger. Trout anglers should be trying damselfly nymphs, leech patterns, hares ear nymphs, wooly and crystal buggers. At the south end, look for holes in the vegetation and fish soft plastics hooked weedless first thing in the morning or late in the evening. Expect the bass to be a bit more active late in the afternoon when the shallow water is a bit warmer from the sun. Fish structure off of rocky points for black bass. The inlet, where the river comes into the lake, is also a good spot to target both trout and bass looking for food. Dark soft plastic baits in motor oil, guacamole, root beer and dark purple with some sparkles in them have been working early and late for bass.
