Davis lake is one of the best fly fishing only lakes in Central Oregon for large mouth bass and big rainbows. If you like throwing big streamers along weedlines - this is your lake. If getting up early or staying late isn't your thing, pull out that bass popper and throw them near the reeds and grasses - it's a lot of fun! You'll likely want to use a float tube, canoe or kayak to fish the best spots of this water.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
