Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Fishing for trout at South Fork has been slow, but several anglers report good success at the south end fishing from float tubes near the willows for trout. Surface water temperatures are in the high 50’s to low 60’s depending upon where on the lake you are. Fishing for both black bass and wipers has been fair to good. The south end of the lake is producing wipers and some bass as the surface water temperatures climb into the high 50’s. This was before the storms that moved in on Thursday that probably dropped the surface water temperatures a few degrees. Most bait anglers are having some success for trout with PowerBait or worms floated off of the bottom, while fly rodders should be using chironomids, hares ears, flash back PT nymphs, prince nymphs, balanced leeches and buggers. Damselfly nymphs are on the move so those patterns should also be tried. Small dark spinners and minnow imitating lures with some red in them have produced a few fish. Black bass may not be kept until July 1. One wiper 15 inches or longer may be kept.
