Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: The surface water temperatures have climbed into the 60’s and fishing for both trout and bass is fair to good. Anglers have had good luck in Coyote Cove and along Jet Ski Beach, but coves further north on the east side such as Tomera, the boat ramp cove and those closer to the dam are good bets for trout anglers. The fish being caught are averaging between 14 and 18 inches with an occasional 20 inch fish being caught. Fishing for black bass appears to be slowing down a bit while wiper fishing is picking up. Black bass are moving into vegetation at the south end of the lake. Many of the wipers appear to being caught at the south end of the lake near the buoy line. Remember, black bass (smallmouth and largemouth) must be returned immediately upon being caught until July 1 and only one wiper 15 inches or longer may be kept. Anglers were having fairly good luck using PowerBait or worms but fly fishermen continue to catch fish with chironomids and midge emergers. Flies that have been working include zebra midges, frostbite chironomids, snowcones, red or green copper Johns and rootbeer Yankee buzzers. There has been a Mayfly hatch during late morning and anglers should switch to hares ears and PT nymphs at that time. Damselflies are also beginning to hatch so damsel nymphs and dries should both start working. South Fork has been stocked with a total of approximately 24,000 fish this spring.
