Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: The surface water temps have dropped into the low 50’s and with the forecasted temperatures should slowly drop into the 40’s over the next couple of weeks. The water has cleared up and fishing is good on most days with anglers reporting trout caught at the south end of the lake, in the coves on either side of the dam, along Jet Ski Beach and in Tomera Cove Chironomid patterns such as soft hackle nymphs, snowcones, Yankee buzzers, and zebra midges are good flies to use this time of year as the midges are one of the few insects hatching. Of course the usual streamers such as wooly buggers, seal buggers, and leech patterns should work as well. The bass bite is starting to drop off as the water cools, but they can still be caught and this is the time of year that the big ones are preparing for winter. Fish structure off of rocky points and south facing shorelines for black bass. As the surface water temperatures cool, the bass will be a bit deeper.
