The Crooked River is fishing quite well in low water conditions. We have seen some really good afternoon BWO hatches and lots of fish coming up to feed on dries. There is a good midge hatch later in the day too. Both of these hatches should go well for the next few weeks with the BWO’s not hatching as well in the really cold days and cold water that can happen in the winter, but midges do. That said, BWO nymphs are always one of our top choices on the Crooked 12 months a year. On the last report I talked about a fly called the Furminsky’s BDE Dun (to match BWO) and some of you came in to pick them up and loved how they fished. Thank you!

Scuds, Zebra Midges, 2 Bit Hooker, Skinny Nelson, Micro Mayfly, Perdigons and Rainbow Warriors are all good now and will be for the winter season. Get to the tying table!
