The Fish Sniffer - Trout, Bass And Wipers Are All Hitting
Trout, Bass And Wipers Are All Hitting

Location: South Fork Reservoir,

Surface water temps in the morning are in the low 60’s but climb to about 70 by mid afternoon. Fishing has been good for trout, fair to good for bass and wipers, reported Joe Doucette of the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

“Smallmouths are mostly off the beds, but the largemouths are still hanging on,” he stated. “Remember, all black bass must be returned to the water immediately after being caught until July 1, because of the spawn.”

 Catfish are showing up in the creel. Anglers appear to be having good luck around most of the lake for trout, though by mid morning the trout have moved offshore to deeper water.

For trout, fluorescent orange or chartreuse seem to be the preferred colors of PowerBait. Fishing for trout is still good, and fly fishermen have had success for two to five pound trout with brown and olive wooly buggers as well as olive seal buggers and olive crystal buggers on the east and south ends of the lake. Damsel flies are starting to hatch so damselfly nymphs are most definitely an option along weed beds.

Wipers are being caught in a bit deeper water, no longer in the real shallow stuff.
