Crowley Lake Has Turned on Into August

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

Crowley Lake has really turned on as it does in July and August. The Sacramento Perch fry have hatched all over the lake and the fish are targeting them alongside the damselfly nymphs. Most of the fish have been caught tight to the bottom on midges and they have been climbing up the ladder to take damselfly, perch fry, and callibaetis imitations. Both our dark and light parallel and standard assassin patterns have been working well. Mixing it up with a punk perch over the weeds and in the channel in McGee Bay has also been an effective rig. Fish are still holding deep in the bay but also move in shallow throughout the day. Browns, rainbows, and cutthroat trout have all been joining the party this month and you can expect many more fish to work their way into shallower water as the perch fry seek refuge within the weed beds.
