The surface water temperatures have climbed into the high 50’s to low 60’s and with the forecast weather, should continue to climb into the 60’s. Anglers have had good luck in Coyote Cove and along Jet Ski Beach, but coves further north on the east side such as Tomera, the boat ramp cove and those closer to the dam are good bets for trout anglers. The fish being caught are averaging between 14 and 18 inches with an occasional 20 inch fish being caught. Some black bass are being caught along with the occasional wiper. Remember, black bass (smallmouth and largemouth) must be returned immediately upon being caught until July 1. Anglers were having some luck using PowerBait or worms but fly fishermen continue to catch fish with chironomids and midge emergers. Flies that have been working include zebra midges, frostbite chironomids, snowcones, red or green copper Johns and rootbeer Yankee buzzers. These seem to work best in the morning or late evening. There has been a Mayfly hatch during late morning and anglers should switch to hares ears and PT nymphs at that time. South Fork has been stocked with a total of approximately 28,000 fish this spring.
