The Crooked suffered a bit last week with icing during the very cold nights and way below average days. It may bounce back quickly this week? Certainly faster down from the dam the canyon opens up and the sun gets in there and so MP 12, 13 and 14 ought to be best. I’ll be curious to hear how MP 19, 18 and 17 are, and if they get better as the week moves on with warmer rains and winds coming through.
The month of March is often greeting us with excellent BWO hatches on the Crooked. I’d guess in the next 10 days or so we will see a big increase in that activity and should see some really good dry fly days coming soon. March and April are typically epic for Blue Wing Olives on the Crooked.
Right Now, it is mostly midges, scuds, small perdigons and cased caddis nymphs.
Don’t forget our spring special guide trip for $375 for up to 3 people running now to April 21st for walk and wade trips.
