The lake has turned over just recently and water conditions have improved greatly. The largest concentrations of fish have shifted from Big Hilton towards McGee Bay 10-15 feet, and the North Arm 10-14 feet. Weed lines begin in both areas around the ten foot mark; however you will find some as deep as 14 feet in the north end. Midges and damsel activity is strong with a good showing of tiny perch fry. Don't neglect to use a small punk perch or damsel nymph pattern as an upper fly. Broken back tiger midges & gillies are good choices when you have some texture/wind on the water. Try a punk perch and Assassin combo along the weed lines. Watch the T-storms, the winds have been kicking up early.
The Still Water Classic is back on again and slated for 8-3-13. This is a catch and release trout derby on Crowley. Call 760-935-4301 for details. The trophy season begins 8-1 with special angling restrictions in effect until Nov. 15th.
