Over on the Crooked River the afternoon Blue Wing Olive hatches are coming off about 1 PM and fish are looking up to the emergers and dries during the hatch. Later in the afternoon, the midge hatch has been very consistent adding at least another hour of dry fly action for those anglers staying later in the afternoon.

Nymphing with zebra midges, baetis nymphs (skinny nelson, flashback PT, 2 bit hooker, micro mayfly), scuds and small prince nymphs.

I’m pretty certain we won’t see any runoff releases raising the river to unfishable levels later in the month or anytime this spring. Seems like the reservoir has a lot of storage capacity. But if that changes we’d report it here. Our spring guide special is on from now until April 21st guiding 1 to 3 people for $350 here and the Fall River.
