The Davidson has the appearance of a flowing stream once again.  Afternoon and evening rain showers have brought back much needed current lines and oxygen to our home river.  Those looking to try their hand at the Big D should still be prepared to wake up early and be ready to wrap things up around 11:00 AM.  Late summer terrestrials such as ants and inchworms will be on the menu throughout the lower reaches of the river, while midges remain the dominant food source for those seeking fish below the hatchery pipes.

The Davidson is running high, but clear.  There are some March Browns around, and sparse spinner falls can be observed in the evening hours.  While there may be some opportunities for dry fly action, nymphing will be the dominate technique until the water drops back to a median flow.  Anglers should concentrate their efforts in deeper riffles and around underwater drop offs for the best shots at larger fish.
