Crooked River Fish Report for 10-29-2021
The Crooked is fair, it is low and off color a bit
Crooked River - Prineville, OR
by The Fly Fishers Place
The Crooked is fair. It is low and off color a bit, but the fish are responding well to small scuds, zebra midges, midge winklers, perdigons, rainbow warriors and skinny nelson’s.
When the hatch happens in the afternoon look for the fish to hit a small Purple Haze, BDE BWO, Knock Down Dun and Comparadun/Sparkle Dun. Midges like the Griffiths Gnat and other midge emergers that float in about a #22 will be good late afternoon in the softer water.
Our guide Troy reported a good catch rate on a #18 Purple Haze with a 3 foot 6x trailer to a small mayfly nymph this week. The Haze was a fly and an indicator, and even though the fish ate the nymph more often, fish did eat the dry too. Otherwise, I would use the NZ Indicator the same way, with one fly to avoid excessive weed cleaning and fish that way.
