Davidson River Fishing Report – May 2, 2012

Updated Every Wednesday

Water Conditions: Normal flows. Clear water. Davidson River Flow

Hatches: PMDs, Yellow sallies, midges, caddis (tan and black)

Fly suggestions: PMDS, 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.  Most any fly from our Davidson River Fly Selection Box would also do…

General Information: Water has returned to normal levels, so the fish are their picky selves again. If you’re serious about catching fish at the Davidson hatchery section, you need 6-7x flourocarbon tippet. I suggest Seaguar Grandmax. Also, don’t use large indicators; the fish see you coming a mile away. Try the smallest size of Thingamabobber instead.

Projected Conditions:The river should fish well all week. With the warmer weather, concentrate on the morning and evening fishing and you may catch a nice midge hatch. If it rains, re-rig with something big and dark and add weight.
