The low water level is affecting the fishing at Lake Crowley & the algae is coming on fast

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Water Conditions: Water temps are at 53-57F on the bottom. Algae is building fast with the hotter daytime temps.

WARNING: The lake is much lower than previous years. Watch out for Pelican Point which sticks out way into the lake.

Look for white buoys and pass to the east.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Excellent, Sandy is still fairly consistant in 10-13 ft of water all along the east side of the underwater bank that extends way out from the point.

Leighton can be good one day, and void of fish the next. Pelican and Big Hilton have been good in the afternoon.

The algae is definitely starting to make itself known. It blows around from day to day and never seems to be in the same place.

Bite starts around 8:30 so no reason to be out there at the crack of dawn.

Recommended Flies:

Kent's: #16-18 Olive, Black or Gray/Black Dubbed Head Optimidge midday. Red/Black or flashback version early. Mickey's: Albino Baron early, Shaft Emerger midday, copper tiger, copper zebras
