The river levels are running perfect at 235 cfs. There have been a light mix of hatches; Caddis, PMD, Baetis, Mahogany Duns and Midges. You can try to match what you see or we've been having luck on the Renegades and Purple Haze type attractors on top. Nymphing is great, perdigons, Jigs, Micro May, 2 … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 6/10/19
The Crooked is back down to under 300 cfs and that's great news. We've been seeing a good number of Mother's Day Caddis still, and the fish have been eating a mix of adults, spent egg layers, and soft hackles. Our best luck has been on Perdigon's and 2 Bit Hookers Euro Nymphing. Scuds, Ray … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 6/4/19
The water came back down to 470 (+/-) overnight, but that is still high. Fish can be caught along the shoreline with a well presented nymph, either under an indi or ESN. Zebra Midges, Mercury Midges, 2 Bit Hookers, Micro Mayfly, Psycho Prince, Scuds, Ray Charles and Perdigons. You might get some fish to look … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 5/31/19
Dang rain! 683 cfs today. Too high. let's hope it drops for the weekend.
Good news on the Crooked in terms of water levels. Yesterday it was 270, this morning 260 and now it is 207 which is below normal summer flows. It looks great and I was nervous with the rain they might bump it up, but it is very fishable. Our guides, especially Mary Ann and Adam … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 5/16/19
Mary Ann has been spending a bunch of time on the Crooked and finding the fishing to be really pretty good. Here is the latest report from her trip 2 days ago. She is guiding there again today and has been spending personal days there as much as possible getting the rhythm of the river … Continue reading Crooked River fishing 5/9/19
Hard to believe the water is still in the high 400's, but the reservoir is 100% full and they are letting out about what is coming in. Makes sense. The fishing is actually good, a little different than fishing it at normal summer flow which is about 250 cfs but it's not bad wading and … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 5/7/19
Looking way better today at 409 cfs and with a pretty moderate flow of just over 600 coming into the reservoir. The reservoir is 100% full so a big rain is going to screw it up fast. Keep that in mind. So, nymphing is going to be the best bet now. You can go with … Continue reading Crooked down to 400 cfs 5/1/19
Fiddlesticks! Bumped to over 700 cfs. We will keep watching it. But I wouldn't fish it at this level. Too damn high.
this is the 1st time in a while I've written "fishing" in the report. While the river is still not at the perfect level, it came down so much it is definitely fishable today at 450'ish cfs. We prefer the Crooked in the range of flow from 75 to 275 cfs. So 450 is still … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 4/24/19
