Crooked River is a great bet from early morning

Crooked River - Prineville, OR

by The Fly Fishers Place

Crooked River is a great bet from early morning until about 2 or 3 and again the last few hours before dark. Most the dry fly action at the moment is in the evening, on caddis, purple haze, rusty spinners and small parachute adams.

During the day you may run into some rising trout during periodic PMD hatches. Look for shadows from the tall trees and canyon walls to be the place you might find more of a hatch. It’s really a cool phenomenom that we see all summer on the Crooked.

Nymphing is excellent especially on Euro Style set ups with Perdigons and Jigs. Zebra Midges, Winklers, Scuds, Psycho Prince, Soft Hackles and Split Case Emergers.
