Ice Out At Lake Davis Is On!
Well, I was off on my prediction of Lake Davis "popping" open from the ice this year by about 10 days, when it goes it goes quickly! Right now the lake is about 50% open water and should be totally free after this weekend's windy conditions. Water temps are running 40-42 degrees. The creeks are flowing and in the next few weeks expect spawning rainbows to be ganging up around them and staging. As always the west shore road will be snowed in for the next 3 weeks at least and Grizzly road on the east side is clear to Lightning Tree. Look for giant blood midge to be hatching in the next few weeks with small chironomids mixed in. As the fish get on the spawn Hot Orange Glimmer can work wonders whether it is a wooly bugger or a wiggle tail pattern. I know your smiling right now! Let the games begin!
