Lakes & Reservoirs

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: The boat dock is in the water at the main boat ramp and the water is clearing. Still some stained water at the inlet end of the lake to the south, but the north and east sides of the lake are fairly clear. The south end of the lake has produced both nice trout and some sporadic wipers in three to four feet of water. Float tubers have been catching the wipers in very shallow water in the south end. They say that if your fins aren’t touching the bottom, you are too deep. Jet Ski Beach, as always, seems to be the popular place to fish, but anglers shouldn’t ignore the eastern shore. Tomera Cove is also producing a few nice fish with one angler reporting a good morning during Sunday’s snow storm catching his fish with a Kastmaster. With water climbing into the mid 40’s, fish are looking for water that is even just a degree or two warmer and the eastern and northern shorelines get the most afternoon sun causing these areas to have a bit warmer water later in the day. Fishing for trout is fair to good, depending upon the day, and fly fishermen have had success with black and red chironomids as well as olive seal buggers and olive crystal buggers. Bait anglers are having success with rainbow PowerBait or worms. A few bass are starting to show up in the creel. Remember, you may not keep any black bass between March 1st and June 30th, they must be released immediately back into the water.
