We headed out to the Crooked 2 days ago and found a lot of fish looking up for an Olive Sparkle Dun and KD Dun. My wife did best on dries and I did better on nymphs. My best combo was a Skinny Nelson with a Downey's BWO dropper. 2 things that made a difference … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 11/17/18
The Crooked is fishing well, but please keep in mind that at 60 cubic feet per second the fish are kegged up and vulnerable to getting caught a lot. Know when to say I got enough, I can give them a break. In other words, don't be a fish hog and catch 100 fish a … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 10/25/18
Great fishing, PMD's and BWO's mixed in the afternoon and excellent nymphing, especially....You guessed it, Euro Nymphing.
PMD and BWO hatches are strong and the fish are really looking up on the dries in the afternoon. We've also been hammering fish on small Mayfly nymphs, Zebra Midges, Scuds and Euro Jigs. If you want to go learn how to Euro Nymph, Ben, Mary Ann, Adam, Troy and Steve are all amazing teachers … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 9/22/18
Its awesome. Tons on little nymphs and a very good PMD hatches. Some BWO's are coming on mixed in with some (and likely improving) Mahogany Duns. We are killing it Euro Nymping. If you need us to tie you a Euro Nymph Leader we either have them done or can do a custom tie for … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 9/6/18
The Crooked is very good now with better PMD hatches in the afternoon, and absolutely killer nymphing. Euro Nymphs, Micro May's, Split Case Emergers and Zebra Midges are smacking them. At dusk there are a good amount of Rusty Spinners with plenty of sippers.
The Crooked is another river holding up well for us. Plenty of cold water spilling from the bottom of the dam makes for great habitat for the first 10 miles or so downstream. Anyway, the fishing is good to very good, especially nymphing with Euro Nymph techniques. Afternoon hatches of PMD's are bringing a lot … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 8/10/18
Crooked is great on Euro Nymphs in the morning and early afternoon and about 2 to 4 a nice PMD hatch comes off and the fish go on the dry well! Evenings are good with Caddis, Rusty Spinners and Soft Hackles. We've been having amazing guide days out there.
Great to see afternoon PMD's improving the afternoon dry fly fishing. In the evening caddis and rusty spinners are really good. We continue to kick butt with Euro Nymphing fishing small mayfly nymphs primarily . PT's, Micro May, 2 Bit Hooker, Perdigons, Euro Jigs, Rainbow Warriors, Ray Charles, Scuds and Zebra Midges are productive.
Fishing is great especially on small nymphs like Zebra Midges, Micro Mayflies, Frenchie's and Perdigons. Some fish coming up in the afternoon especially as the shadows begin to creep over the water and even more so in the evening. Purple Haze or Comparaduns have been great. We've also done well on X Caddis, Adams, Renegades … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 7/10/18
