The rain has returned as of this writing.Looks to be a great water year and the rivers may be prime well into the summer.
Reports are coming in from Lake Davis and it seems as if the veterans who know the lake are averaging between 1-5 fish per outing. Blood midges under an indicator have been producing, but don't be afraid to try PT's and hare's ears as well.A few damsels are starting to show so damsel patterns are worth fishing. Olive,cinnamon,and black buggers as well as wiggle tails are all productive flies stripped in on an intermediate line.My personal favorite, the Sheeps Creek Special,is always the first fly I fish because it catches fish like no other.Give it a shot,you may like it!!
Please leave the false spawners in the backs of the coves alone to do their thing. It is a bad habit for fishers to target actively spawning fish in any lake or river.Please leave these fish alone!!
In closing,come on up and enjoy the beautiful Sierra Valley and Lake Davis!!
