Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Expecting the work on the dam to wrap up any day now. Earlier this week surface water temperatures ranged from the low to mid 40’s, depending upon where on the lake you are and time of day. Don’t expect too much of a drop this week with the warm daytime temperatures. The wind last weekend should have broken up most of the remaining weed beds. Anglers report catching some fish on the southeast side of the lake in eight to 10 feet of water from float tubes using olive or peacock bead head crystal buggers. The trout being caught are averaging between 14 and 18 inches with an occasional 20 incher. Other flies to try include hares ears, scuds, copper Johns, prince nymphs, damsel nymphs, blood midges and of course wooly, crystal and seal buggers. Bass fishing is also slowing down, but what it lacks in numbers it makes up for in size as large bass are on the prowl fattening up for winter. Bass anglers should be targeting south facing shorelines where the sun will have the most exposure heating up the water.
