View Full Version : Davis Lake Apr 23

Fished 10:30 am - 12:15 trolling from Honker Cove Boat Ramp toward dam.
5 Rainbows 9"-11" (3 on silver Kastmaster, 1 on F5-J Rapala Fire Tiger, 1 on black BH Crystal Bugger [#6]) all toplining 130' back from kayak.
I was disappointed not to get any bigger ones. Lots of small fish jumping.
Wind came up big time at 11:30 blowing 15+ mph steady (2' waves and whitecaps)

They are spawning. You can see them all over the shoreline. Couple weeks they will be ready to hit.

Thanks for the report. We will be up there next Sunday in the toon. I like trolling around the island and casting for them in the shallow area of Cow Creek and vicinity. Bummer about no big guys yet, but you know they are there. Next time, give the cutthroat 1/4 ounce Kastmaster a try. The big boys love that lure at Davis. We also do well with the Sep Rainbow Runner. Mark likes his fly rod, using wolly buggers and of course his damsel flies. A leech pattern works also, since that lake used to be filled with leeches.

thanks for the tips. I didn't realize they were spawning.
