The Crooked River is showing signs of improvement and the trout are there. Not many whitefish showing up yet, but good enough trout action mid-day from 11 to 3 with an afternoon midge hatch getting fish to eat dries, and nymph fishing the rest of the time. The river level is low at 50 cfs and I think the best way to target fish in that water condition is a single nymph with a NZ Wool Strike Indicator about 2 to 3 feet above the fly. This allows you to fish the fly in the channels between the weeds and hit small pockets that you can’t fish with a 2 fly fly rig. That is a generalization, and there will certainly be places where you can find a longer pool or run and fish 2, or euro nymph, or even swing a small streamer. Typically march has great hatches of BWO’s on the Crooked. I would imagine we will see good mayfly hatches in the next 2 to 3 weeks and it will be great in April. Fingers crossed.
