Davidson River Fly-fishing Report

Updated Every Wednesday

Water Conditions: Normal water. 101 cfs.  Davidson River Flow

Hatches:Sulphurs, Green Drakes, Yellow sallies, midges, tan caddis, light cahills

Fly suggestions: Sulphur comparaduns, klink emergers, split cases, light cahills, Green Drakes, Lowe’s midge larva, Little lucy, disco midge, micro stone (yellow and black), elk hair caddis, rock worm caddis, midge emergers in gray, black, brown. Inch Worm, ants.  Most any fly from our Davidson River Fly Selection Box would also do…

General Information: Water is at normal flows, so long leaders and flourocarbon tippet is a must. With a dry fly, try concentration on the riffles. To dress your fly, use Dry Magic and to dry it off once you’ve caught a fish, use Dry Shake.  With all the bugs hatching, try fishing some emergers on the swing.

Projected Conditions:The river should fish well all week. With the humid weather, look for some afternoon and evening hatches to come off. If it rains heavy, re-rig with something big and dark and add weight.
