Fly Fishing Picks Up At Davis

Location: Frenchman Lake, Davis Lake,

(Portola) Fly fishing is still slow, but is improving for anglers at Lake Davis, according to Jeanne Graham at J&J Grizzly Store and Camping Resotr.

“One angler reported catching and releasing 3 rainbows from 20 to 21 inches long this morning,” said Graham. “He was fishing orange Wooly Buggers off Jenkins Point.” 

Trolling has been slow. Boaters are experiencing the top action while fishing rainbow garlic Power Bait and worms around the Big Island, said Graham.

“Shore fishermen are finding the best action early in the morning and late in the evenings in Mallard Cove while tossing out nightcrawlers,” she advised.

Brown bullhead catfish offer the hottest action on the reservoir. “Shore anglers are hooking lots of cats averaging 1 to 1-1/2 pounds while using worms in Coot Bay and off Camp Five,” she added.

The lake is 58 percent of capacity and surface water temperatures range from 68 to 72 degrees.

Fishing pressure has been light at Frenchman Lake. “Two anglers – Bob Perry and Pamela Lee – brought in 10 trout while trolling rainbow PowerBait yesterday,” said Sheri at Wiggin’s Trading Post in Chilcoot.

She said hard working shore fishermen are landing limits of quality rainbows while fishing inflated nightcrawlers in the deep water off the right side of the dam.
