South Fork Reservoir Fishing Report

South Fork Reservoir - Elko, NV (Elko County)

The water has cleared quite a bit, but is still a little turbid. Water temperatures have dropped into the low to mid 60’s and the weeds are starting to die off. Trout are moving up into the water column and anglers report catching them five to eight feet deep. The usual wooly buggers, seal buggers and leech patterns as well as the more common nymphs are all effective. Closer to October expect chironomids to become much more effective. 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.
