Crooked River is fishing quite well. This is 3 years in a row where it was slow in the early summer, making us wonder about fish populations and then bam!, the fishing is hot.

Right now it’s mostly PMD’s on the surface and as nymphs. Zebra Midges, Scuds, Perdigons and Skinny Nelsons are good too.

The Water out of the dam is cold. no worries on a hot day stressing the fish from the dam to about MP 14. 

It has been very crowded.
