PORTOLA – Although fishing pressure has been light at Lake Davis during the recent hot weather , anglers are still catching some quality rainbow trout . The fishing should improve as we enter a period of cooler weather . “ The fishing has been slow for trout at Davis lately ,” said Ed Dillard of Dillard ’ s Guided Fishing . “ A friend did catch four rainbows yesterday and four fish today while trolling nightcrawlers behind flashers at 12 to 22 feet deep . He fished from Honker Cove towards the dam . The fish average from 16 to 22 inches long .” The boat dock at Honker Cove is now in the water , thanks to the U . S . Forest Service , according to Jim Graham at J & J ’ s Grizzly Store and Camping Resort : https :// www . facebook . com / USFSPlumas . Shore anglers are using nightcrawlers and PowerBait at Mallard Cove to catch to few rainbows early and late in the day . Catfish action is good all over the lake for anglers using worms www . fishtraverlerguideserviceeaglelake . com
