Fishing has been excellent with the whitefish spawning and anglers having good success fishing egg patterns. Only the section downstream of Bowman Dam to Lake Billy Chinook is now open, above the dam is closed until next spring.

Crooked River anglers may encounter bull trout now that there is volitional passage at Opal Springs. Anglers who catch a bull trout should release it unharmed and report their catch to the US Fish and Wildlife Service at crookedbulltrout@fws.gov.
