Davidson River Fly-fishing Report

Updated Every Wednesday

Water Conditions: low water, very clear.  Davidson River Flow

Hatches: bwos, midges (cream, gray, brownish), tan caddis

Fly suggestions: Midge emergers in gray, cream, brown.  Lowe’s midge larva, blood midges, Little lucy, red disco midge, elk hair caddis, rock worm caddis. Most any fly from our Davidson River Fly Selection Box would also do…

General Information Make sure you make every cast count and sneak up to the big fish. 6x flourocarbon is a must, 7x nylon  may even be called for with dry fly fishing. But if it’s dingy you can maybe try 5x. There have been pretty consistent midge hatches in the morning and evening. At our shops, we have a great selection of midge patterns, as well as bwos and caddis. Also, don’t get cold out there! Check out our awesome Simms waders and outerwear.

For winter, we also have Gore Windstopper hats and gloves by Simms, as well as Colombia fleece pants to wear beneath your waders. Also, don’t forget to wear some warm socks. We have some toasty Smartwool socks in stock…

Projected Conditions:The river should fish well all week! Look for mid-morning and evening hatches to come off. If it rains heavy, re-rig with something big and dark and add weight.
