Lakes & Reservoirs

South Fork Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 10-Oct-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : SOUTH FORK RESERVOIR: The water is clearing nicely and the surface water temps were in the high 50’s earlier this week. Trout are moving up into the water column and anglers report catching them five to eight feet deep. Shore anglers report fish in the shallows catching trout up to 22 inches less than 20 feet from shore. The usual wooly buggers, seal buggers and leech patterns as well as the more common nymphs are all effective. Trout are starting to hit chironimids and fishing is picking up. This is the time of year that anglers can have good luck for both bass and trout as they both start to feed more aggressively in preparation for winter and the ideal water temperatures for them cross paths. Bait anglers have had luck along Jet Ski Beach and near the dam using PowerBait or worms. Bass are hanging in the rocky rip rap of the dam and this would be a great place to target them using soft plastics and minnow imitating lures. The south end of the lake has produced fish along the old river channel or near the underwater standing dead trees for boaters and those in float tubes or kick boats. Fishing in six to ten feet of water nearer the shoreline early in the morning and late in the afternoon has also been productive for both trout and bass.
