Lake Davis Update

After getting out butts kicked by Mother Nature and receiving 3 inches of rain, I woke up and saw a partly cloudy sky and some sun.  Madison needed some exercise so I headed to the lake to do some of that and fish off the bank.  I got to Fairview point at 10am and the surface water temps were 48 degrees.  Trout were rising in skinny and deeper water.  I fished off the point and had a grab when the wind showed up in my face and the trout quit rising.  Not stoked, I parked near Mosquito Slough and hiked up and around Grizzly creek so I could fish the channel on the far bank and get away from the wind.  I fished for about an hour and landed 4 fish with a Sheep Creek Special.  3 of those fish showed themselves and I sight fished to them.  The lake was empty and I saw one boat doing well over the Grizzly channel.  The roads were filled with inches of pine needles and the shore was filled with standing water and puddles - The ground is saturated with moisture!  It was just a pleasure today to get out and get some exercise, and cast the rod.
