The Crooked is getting hot now. BWO hatches are strong and most days the rise to the hatch is incredible.
Having cripples, emergers and duns will help, and 6 or 6.5x tippet.
Later in the day there has been a great midge hatch. Winklers and Century Drive Midges for the emergers, and Griffiths Gnat for the adult. Scuds, Skinny Nelson, Micro Mayfly, Ray Charles, Zebra Midge are all great nymphs.
Keep an eye out for a skawla stonefly hatch! And bring some olive or purple chubbies too.
The water levels coming out of the reservoir are still low. It’ll be about 2 to 3 weeks and we should see some good bump up’s to a more normal summer flow.
Speaking of the reservoir, I had some customers in this week that fished it and caught some nice rainbows from the shoreline on Balanced Leeches.
Our guide Adam is wrapping up a great day on the Fall River with his Clients today. Just a reminder......
