Lakes & Reservoirs

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: South Fork is very green with algae and there are some large weed mats and clumps of algae floating around the lake. Fishing has been fair for smaller trout, slow for larger trout, fair to good for bass and wipers. However, with longer cooler nights water temperatures should drop even more and trout fishing should really start to pick up over the next few weeks. Shore anglers appear to be having some luck around most of the lake for trout, though by mid morning the trout have moved offshore to deeper water. Shore fishing also seems to be best first thing in the morning. If fishing after 10:00 am, fish shorelines with steeply dropping lake bottom to get your presentation down about 15-18 feet where the thermocline is. For trout, fluorescent green or orange/yellow seem to be the preferred colors of PowerBait. While trout fishing has been slow, the cooler water temps may stimulate the fish into being a bit more cooperative for anglers for a bit. Damsel flies are still hatching so damselfly nymphs are most definitely an option along weed beds first thing in the morning, though anglers continue to have some luck with hares ears, PMD’s, seal buggers, and wooly bugger. A few wipers continue to be caught in the deeper open water. Fishing for largemouth bass along the dam has been good using soft plastics.
