Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: This lake is still covered with algae and and the weeds beds and mats are numerous. As the nights get longer and the days start cooling down, expect them to recede. Surface water temperatures are in the low 60’s which is getting into prime territory for trout fishing. 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. Ditto for chironomids, though fish those over muddy bottoms. Bass are still holding in the rip rap on the dam with one angler this week having a good day fishing along the dam. Soft plastics and crank baits should both work.
