Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Very little change here with good water quality, levels and fishing. Surface water temperatures were in the low to mid 40’s earlier this week and the water is 4’ from maximum pool. Fishing has been good with shore anglers reporting limits of chunky trout in the Hendrick’s Arm on both sides of the highway, all the way to the canyon that leads to the dam and at the state park. Fish are averaging 14 to 18 inches with the occasional fish between 20 and 24 inches. Penrod arm is also fishing well. Bait fishermen should use the usual worms or PowerBait for trout and spin anglers report success with Kastmasters, panther Martins and spinners. While most fly rodders report good luck with leeches, especially when fished under an indicator (bobber), they also should be trying the standard fall reservoir patterns: scuds, damselfly nymphs, and blood midges. Chironomid patterns should also be near the top of the list for flies.
