Postcards from Davis Lake 2106



I didn’t think my first fish on the new SAGE X would be a bass! They too eat size 16 callibeatis nymphs.


After paddling and floating down Odell Creek the kids were ready for a snack.

I hadn’t camped at Davis for years, the lake was low but water temperatures in Odell Creek and the lake “channel” remained cool.

Despite the algae bloom trout were in really good shape. There were midges in the early morning, callibaetis and caddis from 8am. A small Jigged Thin Mint was my best fly.

    Thanks for sharing. What techniques are most effective when using the jigged thin mint at Davis Lake?
