Early Afternoon Hatches Stimulates Activity

Crooked River - Prineville, OR

by The Hook Fly Shop Staff

Flows are low at 258 C.F.S. which is good.  Fishing has been good all day, while peak activity has been between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. . The Grannom Caddis hatch will be more active during the morning and evening. When we get an overcast day, bring the dryfly rod because the hatches will be denser and longer. The PMDs are slowing down through august but should pick back up toward the end of the month and into Sept.  They are hatching mostly in the early afternoon from 1-3 p.m. but will trickle into the evening. Flies:  Zebra Midge, Winkers (Black & Red), Psycho May, Split Case PMD, Drifting Grannom, BH Pheasant Tail, San Juan Worm, Sparkle Pupa,  Parachute PMD, Sparkle Dun, PMD Pull Over, Missing Link Caddis, Peacock Caddis, Renegades.
