Solid Numbers of Fish On The Daily

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

What a month of May it has been here with solid numbers of fish on a daily basis. We have been seeing double and triple hookups here quite often on most days as the fish have been feeding in 12 to as deep as 25′ of water. We have employing some different methods here depending on the depth of the water and connecting with some real solid fish. If brown trout are your thing, then now is a good time to get on the lake as we are seeing plenty of them daily. Mix in some stellar rainbows and the occasional large cutthroat trout and you’ve got yourself a solid Crowley Lake slam! Going into this weekend we should see some enormous midge hatches as the weather warms back up to seasonal temperatures. Larva patterns have been the best during the low pressure days tight to the bottom, but the fish should begin to feed higher up as we get into the bigger hatch periods.  #18 Broken Back Copper Tiger, #18 Broken Back Dark Tiger, #18 Broken Back Zebra, #18 Broken Back Gillie, #12 Level Crystal Leech, and #18 Gillie Dark and Light Chironomid Pupa have still been the hot flies this week.
