Davidson River Fly-fishing Report
Updated Every Wednesday
Water Conditions: Good water, clear. Davidson River Flow
Hatches: bwos, midges (cream, gray, brownish), tan caddis
Fly suggestions: Midge emergers in gray, cream, brown. Lowe’s midge larva, blood midges, Little lucy, red disco midge, elk hair caddis, rock worm caddis. Most any fly from our Davidson River Fly Selection Box would also do…
General Information: When the water is up, try stoneflies, streamers, midge larva, and midge emergers. A large caddis may get a rise too. Make sure you make every cast count and sneak up to the big fish. 6x flourocarbon is a must, 7x nylon may even be called for with dry fly fishing. But if it’s dingy you can maybe try 5x. We’re also getting into terrestrial season, so consider using an ant, inch worm, or even something bigger, with a dropper underneath. We have a great selection of terrestrial patterns, such as the flyin’ beetle , at both shops!
Projected Conditions:The river should fish well all week! With the humid weather, look for some afternoon and evening hatches to come off. If it rains heavy, re-rig with something big and dark and add weight.
Be careful if there is a lightning storm. You don’t want to be standing in water with a rod in your hand.
