South Fork Reservoir Fishing Report

South Fork Reservoir - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Earlier in the week surface water temperatures were in the low 60’s.  With the precipitation we received earlier this week expect them to have dropped into the 50’s and the algae to start clearing up.  Hopefully, trout fishing will start picking up.  With the lower water temperatures, expect bass fishing to slow down.  Fly rodders should be using chironomids, hares ears, flash back PT nymphs, prince nymphs, balanced leeches and wooly or crystal buggers.  Spinners and minnow imitating lures with some red in them should work for spin anglers.  Dark soft plastic grubs with some sparkle are working for bass as are crank baits.  As the water cools and bass start moving down into the water column, deep running blade baits should start working for bass.
