Crane Prairie has gotten to a water temp that concerns me. I took water temps that went to 74 at the surface and only to about 67 at the bottom. Morning fishing is safest for the fish. Balanced Leech (black has been my best color), Damsel nymphs and Chironomids are all working and fishing is good. I just worry about the fish fighting so hard when the water temps hit 70+.
