Fishing Report - Lake Davis; The End Is Near.....

Though it was very cold this morning, the sun was out and the lake was calling my name.  With ice and snow here and there I have put my boat away for winter.  Now I'll just be the shore fishing warrior till the lake locks up solid.  I got to my bucket a few clicks south of Mosquito Slough and sat and watched the water, a riser appeared, then two, and then multiple fish began working in front of me - I had an active feeding pod at my feet.  In the next 40 minutes I had landed 8 fish, all risers who I stalked and casted to.  2 of those fish ran 18 & 19 inches with nice olive backs and girth.  The rest were the cookie cutter 16"ers that have been podding up.  Water temps were at 44 degrees, and the inflow of Grizzly Creek ran at 40 degrees.  Sheep Creek Specials was the fly to have on the end of your leader - Love this fly!  I then walked the Grizzly creek side and spotted a few skinny water feeders, hooked 4 and landed one.  Ice is starting to form in certain areas and there is some snow on the ground where the sun does not shine.  Very light fishing pressure today as well.  There is still game at the lake, but it is going quick with the onslaught of winter fast approaching.  It's quite depressing to think it will be 6 months until things get going again here.  This year has been great for me at the lake, and I have fallen in love with her all over again.  What a sweetheart she is......

  2. I tubed Mosquito Slough Thursday. About 15 to hand, all on Rickard's Stillwater Nymph with an intermediate sink line. Nothing over 16" for me, but good, fun healthy fish!

  3. Ken,

    I must have seen you out there, Im the guy with the blue heeler who barks at every hook up. All my big clean fish have been in 1-2 feet of water and active risers. Glad you had fun out there!

  4. I had a blast, Jon, but I didn't see any risers whatsoever. I'm heading up there in a few minutes - probably go to Mosquito Slough again. I'll take my tube but want to do some exploring from shore as well. Thanks for a great blog with just enough in the way of fishing tips. I hope our paths cross one day up there one day; I drive a Yukon XL with NV plates and 'High Sierra Fly Casters' on the license plate frame.
