Crowley Lake has been as good as it gets, meaning 50 plus fish days on all species, with a heavy emphasis on cutthroat trout catches. The lake level continues to drop and the fish will migrate away from the shallows with the changing water levels. Both ends of the lake have been producing great numbers of fish of mixed sizes. Somedays the quality is better than others but it has been extremely consistent fishing on fish from 16 – 23″. The majority of fish have been caught right over the mud bottoms and feeding heavily on midges. The hatches have been exploding currently and the algae drifts in from time to time. Cleaning your flies and leader is important in getting bites so keep an eye on that when the algae rolls in. You will get fish right on the bottom and all the way up to the surface so vary those depths with your flies. Streamer tuggers are getting into some nice fish too and going bigger with their flies now that the perch fry have grown. It can be good to mix it up with both setups at this time of year.
