South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 25-Mar-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Surface water temperatures are approaching 50 degrees and fishing is picking up at South Fork. Anglers report fair to good luck catching fish ranging in size from 12 to 18 inches with a few coming in over 20 inches. Shore fishing has been good for the smaller fish as they are in the shallow warmer water. The larger fish seem to be holding a bit deeper, though a few are still being caught from shore, especially where the water deepens rather quickly. 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. The bluffs along the northwest side of the lake by the dam have produced some nice fish in the 16 to 20 inch range. 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. The lake has been stocked a couple of times already and spring stocking should continue into May.
