Comments / Updates

”Fish here are really healthy and strong for their size, 12” to 25”, populations are low, but the bigger fish can range from 4 to 6 pounds.

 

Come for the day, or camp out under the stars. Grasshopper Flat and Grizzly campgrounds are offer the best accommodations. Amenities in the area of Lake Davis/Eastern Plumas County can be found on my website/resources page here; Baiocchi's Troutfitters Fly Fishing Resources. Once you confirm your deposit, a trip planner for Lake Davis will be emailed to you with loads of information, and a helpful map. I look forward to sharing and teaching you about Lake Davis and the techniques that will work on western stillwaters. – Jon.
