Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Surface water temperatures are in the high 60’s as of the writing of this report and may hit 70 degrees by the end of the weekend. The water is still pretty clear though weeds are starting to grow. Expect the weed and algae growth to kick up a notch with the warm weather. Black bass are on their spawning beds around the shallow areas of the lake. Anglers are being asked to give the guard males a break and fish the drop-offs just off the bedding areas for the other bass that are hanging in those areas. A 20 pound catfish was caught earlier this week with a worm floated a few feet above the bottom on the west side of the lake. Sherbet, rainbow, and Chartreuse PowerBait along with worms are what most anglers have been using for trout, with the PowerBait appearing to catch more fish. Flyrodders have been having luck with smaller flies such as hares ears, prince nymphs, black micro leeches and copper Johns in sizes 14 to 18 fished six to eight feet below an indicator. Wooly, seal and crystal buggers are also catching trout and bass. Damselfly nymphs should start working any day now. Trout fishing continues to be good from the main boat ramp cove to the dam on the east side of the lake as well as the last couple of coves on the west side before the spillway. The south end of the lake right below the culverts has also produced some nice fish. Smallmouths have been caught near submerged trees along the no wake buoy line at the south end of the lake. Black bass may not be kept until July 1st and must be returned to the water immediately upon catching. However, one wiper 15 inches or larger may be kept.
