Lake Davis Spring Report
Great News! Lake Davis is 90% open water and the Honker Cove boat ramp is cleared but no dock yet. Space is very limited to put in a big boat, but smaller boats should have no problem.
Even the parking lot at Honker Cove is reduced in size, full of snow, timber, and heavy equipment.
Snow Creek and the rest of the seasonal creeks are pumping water. The snow pack at the lake is still big, I do not expect the west side road to be open for another month or more!
The expert fisherman have already shown up prowling the mouths of creeks gulping down trout. As you can tell the water level after this big winter has come up already as the willows are in the water - New trout habitat!
The road on the east side stops at Mallard Cove.
Some brave souls wheeled into Mallard Cove, but still there is so much snow a good snowshoe out to the water sounds better to me. Water temps were 43-45 degrees. The trout are already going into spawning mode as I saw fish rolling in Honker Cove (closed to fishing). I hope to get out in the next few days to see water levels and wet a line with a hope a large trout will bite.
