South End Producing More Fish Than Other Areas

South Fork Reservoir - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Surface water temperatures continue to drop, though they are still in the 40’s.  Cold mornings find ice in the backs of coves, but the ice disappears once the day warms up.  For the most part trout fishing is still fair, with the south end of the lake and the coves closest to the dam producing more fish than other areas.  Boaters and float tubers also seem to be doing better than shore anglers for trout, especially on the southeast side where the old ranch house used to be. With the lower water temperatures, bass fishing is pretty much done for the year.  Fly rodders should be using chironomids, hares ears, flash back PT nymphs, prince nymphs, balanced leeches and wooly or crystal buggers for trout. Spinners and minnow imitating lures with some red in them should work for spin anglers.
