Lake Davis / MFFR/ NFYR Update

Lake Davis; Water temps back up to 57 degrees, water clarity still off colored. Fishing was slow for me and others on Friday. Fish are still scattered at all depths but concentrations of them are being found at the Freeman Creek area. Hatches of Calibaetis and Blood midges are increasing and I saw two fish rise while I was out there.

I'm getting outstanding reports for Frenchman's Reservoir in the north end of the lake by many anglers, 10-20 fish days using basic still water flies with a intermediate line.

MFFR; Water levels in the upper river are way down from last week but still a tad high. Water temps are up to 52 degrees. Hatches continue to be good and the little green stone fly was out in big numbers on Saturday. This stone fly is not to be confused with the Yellow Sally, it is a size 12 and hatches mid stream and not on the rocks. A gold bead head PT was working for the emerging stage of the little green stoner. Fishing pressure remains very light

NFYR; Raging and cold! Water temps were 48 degrees. I wanted to wet a line here on Saturday but the flows dictated that it was un-fishable. Another 3-4 weeks away from good fishing here.

  1. Interesting, I have found alot of smaller stonefly shucks in the drift on the Truckee, and always assumed they were yellow sallys that were swept off the rocks... perhaps these are Green stones aswell?

  2. I have found on the MFFR that this little green stoner comes out during June through part of August, This year is early for them. If the shucks are about a size 14-12 it could well be the little green stonefly on the Truckee you are finding. The only way to be sure is to see them emerge from the water right in front of you and capture the natural. I'll have to get pic a up here soon with some size reference.
