Crowley Lake Fishing Report

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Water Conditions:  Good

Lake Elevation at 6770.2 on 5/20

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Fair-Good

UPDATE: When the wind has been down, going 10'-16' deep has been good but the best spots are spread out. There seems to be 2 choices, shallow means bigger fish and perch while deep means all trout but not as big. The perch must be getting closer to spawning because the numbers caught are increasing. I have gotten some reports that 18-30 feet has been good but more quantity than quality. Best locations have been Green Banks, Leighton Springs, Sandy Point, off the McGee Bay float tube parking with the north end getting better. Hilton Bay is picking up also.
