A Native Northern Californian with 45 years of hands on fly fishing for trout, Jon Baiocchi carries on the tradition of sharing the knowledge and the passion passed down from his father; a fly fishing hall of famer, and a legendary voice for saving California fisheries. Jon’s home is the rich flora and fauna of the foothills to the Northern Sierra. Fishing, guiding, public speaking, tying, writing, and teaching. The legacy continues.

Fishing Report - Lake Davis
Water temps at 10am were 46 degrees rising to 50 by 2pm in the skinny water off the bank. Fish were rising in 6"- 3 feet of water rising to Blood Midge, and a very small black aquatic beetle. The weather was absolutely fabulous with air temps near 70 degrees, sunny skies, with a gentle east wind to 5mph. Effective flies were Sheep Creek Specials, and Jay Fair Wiggle Tails in Med. Olive Shimmer - #10 scud hook. Freeman creek and the north lake have the best concentrations of shallow feeding rainbows. Look for rising fish, cast, and stalk. Fish were very spooky today, so stealth tactics need to be applied from the bank. Hooked 12 and landed 7 today, 14-18". I had the pleasure of fishing with my good friend Pete N. from Graeagle, he was all smiles chasing trout in the skinny water - What a game (kinda like last night's clincher for the SF Giants, Yeah...Epic!). The next 4 days will be carbon copies of today, and I'll be out there in the thick of it!
