South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 20-Dec-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Combine a few extra degrees of temperature then were forecasted with very windy conditions and this lake has lost what little ice it had. As of Thursday, December 15, the lake was ice free. However, with the cold temperatures forecast for the next week, it may freeze over this weekend if the wind holds off. The usual wooly buggers, seal buggers and leech patterns as well as the more common nymphs are all effective. Olive and/or rust colored balanced leeches along with chironomid patterns are producing trout at the south end and along most of the shoreline. Trout are actively feeding on chironomids(midge larva). Orange seemed to be the best color for PowerBait. Worms with corn or cheese marshmallows are also working. Anglers should fish fairly close to shore as trout are cruising in about four feet of water.
