Crooked River is Fishing Good

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

Crooked River is good, with a lot of Mother’s Day caddis now and some PMD’s. The River is running under 200 cfs so it appears the shortage of water in the reservoir is causing them to conserve some now.

Nymphing is far and away the sweet spot on the river now, with Caddis Pupa, Zebra Midges and PMD Split Case Nymphs doing best. Soft Hackles are also killing it.

At about 1 PM the dry fly fishing gets hot on X Caddis, CDC Caddis, Corn Fed Caddis and Elk Hair Caddis are all good. Purple Haze, PMD Comparadun, Knock Down Dun and Renegades are good on top too, so keep an eye out on those during the non-caddis times or during a masking hatch.
