Lake Davis Fishing Report 10/14/2016
So far, the fall season at Lake Davis has been better than expected. The fall colors are turning on but this year has seen uneven colors, with many trees already dropping their leaves. Fishing pressure remains light. Water temperatures are 51 to 55 degrees. It needs to get a little colder for the rainbows to remain in the shallows all day long. Hopefully after this weekend of intense precipitation that will happen. Speaking of which, you’re better off staying indoors and tying flies than at the lake. Big wind is forecasted throughout the weekend.
Fish areas and coves on the west and north shores that are not receiving pressure. There have been pods of fish rising in select areas; seek them out before they travel elsewhere. Sheep Creek specials and wiggle tails in fiery brown, burnt orange, and rust are hot right now. Drop to 3x, the rainbows are letting their guard down, typical of the fall season.
I’ll be putting the boat away when the first big snowstorm hits, though I’ll still be doing walk and wade trips for those hardy enough. Give me a call if you’re interested, and if you want in on my Lower Yuba River skwala trips book now. Best of luck to you all, enjoy the fall, and enjoy those pumpkin trout. See you on water…
