The Crooked River is still sitting with low flows at 49 cfs. However with our nice weather rolling through the fishing has been lights out. Dry fly, or a dry dropper has been our go to set up as of late. Tiny Cherobyls #14 on top and a 12-18’’ dropper to a two bit in red, or a jigged pheasant tail. BWO’s continue to hatch around 12:30pm and have produced some amazing dry fly opportunities. Break out that 3 weight or 4 weight and have a blast, stop by the shop or give us a ring with any questions, we love to hear from our locals on how their fishing excursions went.
