Low Water on the Davidson

The water level has dropped to summer type flows on the D.  It makes fishing the hatchery section different for sure.  The fish are often in shallow spots, flouro leaders may snag rocks as they sink, and the clear water makes the fish spookier and more selective.  Despite the tougher conditions, my buddy Matt Sloan still caught fish on the D his first time fishing it.

 Booyah!  15 or 16 inch rainbow.  Just above the humble hole again.

We caught fish on the typical midges as well as stoneflies, emerging caddis, and terrestrials.  It was tough fishing at times, but we landed some nice fish, a couple pushing 20 inches.  Terrestrial season is officially full tilt.
