South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 10-Dec-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: The lake is ice free and fishing for trout continues to be good from shore on most days, though anglers do report the occasional slow day. Surface water temperature is still holding in the low 40’s. The state park has taken the boat dock out of the water here. With the cooler temperatures trout are moving into shore especially during low light conditions. Fly rodders continue to catch fish using chironomids, hare’s ears, wooly bugger and leech patterns. Bass fishing is slow to nonexistent. Anglers report good fishing along Jet Ski Beach and the south end. Good success for trout along the old river channel at the south end of the lake as well using small boats, float tubes and pontoon boats. The eastern shore on either side of Tomera Cove has been fishing well, especially for fly rodders. Bait anglers are using nightcrawlers and PowerBait in a variety of colors though orange and chartreuse as well as rainbow seem to be favorites.
