Fishing is Still Slow to Fair.

South Fork Reservoir - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

South Fork has about seven to 10 inches of ice with some open water near the inlet at the south end of the lake.  As of Wednesday, there was snow on the ice making it much safer to navigate than last week when it was very slick.  Fishing  is still slow to fair.  Good areas to try include the cove at the main boat ramp, Tomera Cove and Jet Ski Beach. The anglers doing the best seemed to be jigging their presentation on a regular basis attracting fish to their line.  Garlic flavored PowerEggs in red or chartreuse seem to be working as well as anything.
