Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Water temperatures are in the 50’s and with the wind from earlier in the week, much of the weeds and algae have been blown to shore helping to clear the water. With the cooler temperatures trout are moving into shore especially in the morning and early evening hours. For trout, fluorescent green or orange/yellow seem to be the preferred colors of PowerBait. Fly rodders continue to catch fish using chironomids, hare’s ears, wooly bugger and leech patterns. Leech patterns suspended under an indicator near weed beds and close to shorelines should work great this time of year. Several fly flishermen report luck with either red or blue copper Johns below an indicator in the shallows close to shore. Ditto for chironomids, though fish those over muddy bottoms. Bass fishing has slowed down considerably, though this time of year is good for larger bass. Anglers report fair to good fishing along Jet Ski Beach and the south end. The eastern shore on either side of Tomera Cove has been fishing well, especially for fly rodders using the aforementioned copper Johns. One angler even reports some good dry fly action along the eastern shore below the campground around mid morning.
