Fishing rating: Good

Flows fluctuate quickly in this stretch of the river.   Many anglers prefer not to navigate the river when two units or less are being released from Davis Dam.  Check the projected releases before your trip.

Trout are stocked weekly by the USFWS Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery from October through March.  Additional trout will be stocked in September and April with funding from Bullhead Pest Abatement.  With an abundance of blackfly, caddisfly, and mayfly larvae available for the trout to feed on, not only can you catch the recently stocked fish, but older holdover trout should be growing quickly here. Trout are stocked at Davis Camp, Community Park, and Rotary Park during the fall.  Some anglers prefer to fish for the holdover trout away from the stocking locations.

Striped bass are also available.  Anglers will have a great opportunity to catch stripers throwing big baits.
