Inch Worm, ants, beadles.  Most any fly from our Davidson River Fly Selection Box would also do…

General Information: 109 cfs is a nice water level for the Davidson and the fish should be spread out well from bank to bank. We’re also getting into terrestrial season, so consider using an ant or even something bigger, with a dropper underneath. We have a great selection of terrestrial patterns, such as the Cow Killer ant, at both shops!

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.
