The Davidson is fishing well, but presentation and approach are key. Try smaller sizes of your favorite fly patterns and avoid fishing nymphs with too much flash, or bright bead heads. Fishing the hatchery section seems to be on the up swing, with the fish holding in shaded areas on bright days. As always, fishing the hatchery means having a good quiver of midges in your fly box and plenty of 7x fluorocarbon. Fly Patterns: Parachute Adams 18-20, Elk Hair Caddis 14-18, Quill Gordons 16-18, Trip Savers 16, Pheasant Tails 16-22, Olive Hare's Ears 16-18, Black Copper John's 18-20, Zebra Midges 20-22, Johnny Flash Chocolate 22-24, Pure Midge Olive or Black 22-24.

Davidson River: Currently the bottom of the Davidson is lined with countless “rock worm” cased caddis, assorted mayfly nymphs, and a good number of larger golden stonefly nymphs. There have been daily hatches of smaller mayflies and caddis, and as always, the ever consistent midge hatch. Fly Patterns: Parachute Adams 18-20, Elk Hair Caddis 14-18, Quill Gordons 16-18, Trip Savers 16, Pheasant Tails 16-22, Olive Hare's Ears 16-18, Black Copper John's 18-20, Zebra Midges 20-22,
