The Canyon has been fishing fair to good early mornings and again around dusk. Most rainbows are measuring between 10-14 inches, so a three or four weight is best suited.?? The whitefish are plentiful (as always!) in the Crooked and best caught deep using size 18 tan BH Scuds, Size 16 olive BH Sparkle Pupa and size 18 BH Flash Back PT's.

If?? targeting Redside Trout, one would be better off staying on top using dries, as the whitefish seldom rise to the surface.?? It's a caddis fest with a few PMD's, PED's, midges mixed in. In the a.m, stick to tan and olive Elk Hair Caddis with a size 20 Tailwater Tiny dropper. ??Another player off the bench is an Extended Body PMD Dun size 16. Come 8:00 ~ dark'30 a Partridge Peacock Soft Hackle size 14-16 or an Olive Sparkle Pupa size 14-16 is all you need. The down and across soft-hackle swing can make for some easy catching.
