Crane Prairie Reservoir Report

Crane Prairie Reservoir - Sunriver, OR (Deschutes County)

by The Fly Fishers Place

Crane Prairie was a trip this week. From freezing our asses off and being bundled up like Mountain Climbers Tuesday, to wearing short sleeve shirts on Thursday, it was nice to see a change in the weather.
The fishing I would call challenging both days, with moments of greatness, if you could find the action. We caught most of our fish on small black or chrome chironomids, several on damsel nymphs, and mixed in a bunch of fish on balanced leeches throughout the couple of days. The algae bloom has started to take off and water temps across the lake range from high 50’s in the Deschutes area to mid 60’s away from the channel.
