Davis Lake

04/20:

Davis Lake is accessible, with little snow on the ground. Trout are staged up in Odell Creek because it is spawning season. They should be left alone to repopulate the lake. Seek non-spawners or post-spawners in the more open sections of the lake. The water is cold, but a few hardy anglers are having some success.
