With the warmer temperatures and the wind, the ice receded at Jet Ski Beach and there was a large are of open water for fishing there.  Fishing was fair to good depending upon time of day, with anglers doing best before 10:00 am.   If there is still open water there this weekend, the usual rainbow sparkle PowerBait fished off the bottom using a slip sinker should work.  Worms can be tried as the sun gets high in the sky and things warm up.  For fly rodders chironomid patterns, copper Johns, small hare’s ears, pheasant tail nymphs and balanced leeches should be tried.  Fishing below the dam in the river has been slow with very low flows. South Fork was stocked with almost 107,000 trout in 2020.
