Almost Completely Ice Free

South Fork Reservoir - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

South Fork is almost completely ice free and should be completely ice free by the end of next week with the warmer temperatures. Fishing has been slow to fair, though occasionally anglers report catching a half dozen fish in shallow (3 feet deep) water near shore. A few 20+ inch trout were taken in this area last week by fly rodders.  Trout are still being seen rolling near the surface along Jet Ski Beach and Coyote Cove, so fishing small PT’s, hares ears or chironomid emergers just under the surface may work as well.  Water temperatures are in the high 30’s and fishing will probably be slow until it gets into the high 40’s.
