THE DAVIDSON RIVER

When to Fish The Davidson

The Davidson River lies in the Pisgah National Forest. Because of its relatively low elevation, the Davidson River does not experience the colder temperatures that are seen in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. As shown above, the Davidson fishes best during the Spring and Fall. Fishing in the Winter leaves anglers vulnerable to low water temperatures and reduced fish feeding activity. Because of the low water conditions and warmer water temperatures in the Summer, the Davidson River becomes a more difficult area to fish. We also advise anglers fishing the Davidson River in the Summer to restrain from exhausting fish while landing them and take extra care to ensure their safety when reviving them. The Davidson River is an excellent place to fish during the right seasons and boasts some of the largest fish in our local area. For this reason, the Davidson River has been on the Trout Unlimited Top 100 Stream of America for several years and is a favorite for many of our guests.
