Lake Davis Campout May 2014

Lake Davis

May 16th we had our first RV campout of the season going to Lake Davis, near the town of Portola, on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mtns.   It was the first time camping there and the sites were terrific.  We brought kayaks this time but found it quite windy which limited the amount of kayaking we could do, comfortably.  My experience of fishing was lousy.  Lots of weeds in the water.  I understand Mallard Bay is a good fishing spot.  I did try it when I was leaving but also had no luck there either.  A couple days after we got back I went up to Lake Valley Reservoir for the morning  and redeemed myself as a fisherman by catching  two nice sized trout.  It was interesting to see so many pelicans at this freshwater lake.
