The fishing has been decent on the Crooked River. We are finding some very nice whitefish and a handful of decent trout. Our guides have been getting decent numbers for small trout with a few nice fish mixed in there. Unfortunately, there has not been much of a hatch or many rising fish, so we are continuing to nymph. The weekend crowds have been pretty bad. There is a good number of kayakers still floating that can get in your way at times. Anyway, if you are fishing the Crooked this week. Nymph with small nymphs 18-22s with 5x or 6x fluorocarbon tippet. Our go to nymphs have been purple/red/black zebra midges, olive or black tailwater tiny’s, ray charles, serendipity, and micro mayflies. Fishing two nymphs will be your best bet.
