Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: Due to the above average temperatures the surface water temps are still in the 60’s, there are floating mats of weeds and the water is still green with algae. However, rain is expected this weekend and the influx of cooler water plus the 10 degree cool down forecast for daytime highs should drop the surface water temps into prime trout range. Trout fishing seems to be better where the algae isn’t quite as thick, though there aren’t many clear areas. Shore anglers are still having some luck along the northwest corner of the lake and it seems to be best first thing in the morning. For trout, fluorescent green or orange/yellow seem to be the preferred colors of PowerBait. Damsels and dragonflies will pretty much disappear after this cold spell. Fly rodders continue to catch fish using chironomids, hare’s ears, wooly bugger and leech patterns. Leech patterns suspended under an indicator near weed beds should work great this time of year. Fishing for largemouth bass along the dam and on structure has been good using soft plastics.
