Fishing at Crowley can be mixed

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Water Conditions:
Water temp: 55 to 62 on the bottom. Algae has run its couse and it is back to pretty much clear water everywhere. Daphnia reported a few places - look for suspended fish.

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:
Good to Excellent with a good mix of fish from 8" to 20+ at Big Hilton, Leighton Springs and off North end of Six Bays.

Watch out for daphnia and move if you see all the fish up in the water column.

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

Guides Hint:
Use non-descript flies Olive, Gray/Black and Black to catch fewer little guys.
