Crane Prairie Update 5/29/19

The fishing on Crane has remained pretty steady and we are catching good numbers of high quality Rainbows. Most of the fish continue to come below an indicator, although a slow-stripped Leech pattern has also provided success.

Flows Bump on the Crooked

We’ve seen some changes on the Crooked in the last few days. Rainfall earlier in the week brought a bump in flows above Prineville reservoir, and with the lake at 100% capacity the tailwater has mirrored that jump in flows. We were sitting at 630cfs for a couple days and today saw a drop into …

Fall River Update 5/17

Fishing has been excellent on the Fall, and with the return of consistent stocking we are seeing great numbers and average size. A light nymph rig with an attractor pattern followed by a Midge or Baetis pattern has been the ticket for consistent production throughout the day. A small indicator and fluorocarbon tippet are ideal …
