Crane Prairie I heard was improving since the cooler nights and the thunderstorm. I hope that means no more mid-70’s water temps. Find the channels or at least near them and fish Chironomids and Balanced Leeches. I am looking forward to some CP action soon. My notes indicate last August was quite good at Crane for me, and I looked at fly’s and small Maroon Jig Leeches, Olive Balanced Leech, Black Balanced Leech, Hot Head Leeched in Black and in Olive with Fluorescent bead heads, and a variety of Chironomids were hot throughout the month. I recall that Maroon Leech was especially the hot one under an indicator.
