Crane Prairie was tough for me on Thursday. I heard they lowered the lake about 2 feet from the day before. It was certainly off and weird. Finally, later in the afternoon we found some fish on all black balanced leeches and saved the day. 

Another friend was there this week and reported good fishing on Black Zebra Midges. 

Damsels are hatching well and the nymphs are good. I’d also try floating an adult damsel on a slightly choppy day for those risers that come up and smack the surface intermittently.
