Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Trout fishing has slowed down considerably as the trout have moved deeper. The trick is to fish early and fish deeper. The south end of the lake is seeing a lot of weed growth. Fly rodders continue to have some success with damsel fly nymphs fished along the edges of weed beds and in the backs of the coves early in the day. Of course the usual wooly buggers, seal buggers and leech patterns as well as the more common nymphs are all effective but a fast sinking line is needed to get the flies down to the fish. A few wipers continue to be caught along the no wake buoy line at the south end of the lake and near the spillway on the west side of the dam using black over silver and black over white crank baits, fire tiger minnow imitations and chartreuse crystal buggers and Clouser minnows. Smallmouth bass fishing was good last weekend fishing the rip rap on the dam using soft plastic jigs that were blue with red flecks. Several of the smallmouth were over the fifteen inch minimum. Anglers may now keep one black bass fifteen inches or longer.
