The water levels remain low, and the whitefish spawn has been in full effect. Focusing your efforts in the deepers pools and fish eggs! Dry droppers with a tiny chernobyl and a decently long dropper with an egg and a zebra midge.

With a little rain we can expect to see a few baetis flying around so having a couple BWO dry flies never hurts when out on the Crooked. Also midges in the afternoons is always a safe bet if you want to throw tiny little griffiths gnats.

Suggested Dries: Purple Haze #16-20, Black Chubby Chernobyl #12-16, Griffiths Gnat #18-22, Hi Vis BWO #18-20, Tilt Wing BWO #18-20, Hackle Stacker #18-22, Parachute BWO #18-20. 

Suggested Nymphs: Clown Egg #8, Flash Tail eggs #18, Unreal Egg #14, Zebra Midge #18-22, Perdigon Black #14-18, Twisted may #16, CDC Jigged Pheasant Tail #14-16, Juju Baetis Black #18-22.
