One of my friends hit the Crooked River this week and said it was quite good, mostly on Eggs.

The water is low, running in the mid-40’s Cubic Feet per Second. I say this because I’ve had a bunch of emails asking about flows, as the gauge is broken and showing Zero CFS if you look on the internet. It is a low winter flow, slightly below average and below what we’d hope for, but definitely not zero flow. That would be bad.

Besides Eggs, tiny mayfly nymphs and midges are tops, with scuds and sow bugs too.
