We love love love when fish are eating dries! The Crooked River has been an exceptional dry fly experience over the past couple of weeks. We are seeing a decent PMD/BWO hatch with a mix of caddis in there as well. We have been fortunate enough to mainly fish dries throughout the day. If the bite gets a bit slow on top, we add a dropper to the setup before totally cashing in and switching over to nymphing. Fish like to eat small size 18-20 purple haze, parachute adams, and BWO extended bodies. As a dropper, we have been fishing size 18-20 black and olive tailwater tinies, size 18-20 black or red two-bit hookers, and size 16-18 pheasant tails. Remember, this is one of our fisheries that is open year long! The fishing has been great for us on top and under the indicator!
