South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Fishing has been slow to fair most days with the occasional good day scattered in between. Fish range in size from 12 to 18 inches on average with a few coming in around 20. Shore fishing has been good as the fish are in the shallow warmer water. Water temperatures are in the low 40’s, so don’t expect fishing to pick up too much until the water temperature moves into the 50’s. Areas that have been productive for trout include the main boat ramp cove, Tomera Cove, the bluffs below the east side campground and Jet Ski Beach. Sherbet PowerBait or worms is what most anglers have been using with the PowerBait doing the best. Flyrodders should be trying wooly buggers, seal buggers, hare’s ear nymphs and pheasant tail (PT) nymphs. As the water starts to warm up, anglers should start trying chironomid patterns, though currently not much action is being seen with chironomids.
