Crane Praire Fishing Report

Crane Prairie Reservoir - Sunriver, OR (Deschutes County)

by The Fly Fishers Place

I fished Crane Prairie on Monday and was happy with the day. The fish are in great shape and we saw a lot of fish working and my friend and I landed over 20 nice fish. Black balanced leech, olive chironomid, black chironomid, hanging with my chromie, balanced baitfish, and bloodworms. Stripping leeches on a hover or intermediate is good. We found more fish in shallow areas (5-7’) but a good friend found them in 12-14’ a few days before. *Bring a mosquito head net for the biblical swarm of midges that will cover your face if you don’t have the netting.
