Things on the Crooked have slowed down a little, and the cold temperatures have resulted in a little ice and sluggish fish. Fish are still feeding actively, but it is important to focus on the deepest areas and to fish them thoroughly because fish are moving slow and not willing to exert much energy in the pursuit of food. There is still some opportunity to fish dries during mid-day BWO and Midge hatches, primarily on calm overcast days, but nymphing is the go-to method on most days. Small flies are essential this time of year, and we try to go as small as our eyes or cold fingers allow us with some 6X fluoro. Little Midge and BWO patterns in the #18-24 range are the best producers, but a Ray Charles or small Scud pattern will also find fish. It’s still worth the drive to head out to the Crooked, especially when we see a warming trend or a few days of consistent cloud cover and precipitation.

Suggested Dries: Sparkle Dun BWO #18-22, Hackle Stacker BWO #18-22, Purple Haze #18-22, Nunya’s Midge #20-24, Hatching Midge #18-22, Griffith’s Gnat #18-22

Suggested Nymphs: Black Winker’s Midge #18-24, Purple or Black Zebra Midge #18-24, Black Beadwing Midge #18-22,  Biot Midge #18-22, Black or Pearl Rainbow Warrior #18-20, Olive or Black Tailwater Tiny #18-22, WD-50 #18-22, Black Two Bit Hooker #18-20, Brown or Olive Micro-Mayfly #18-20, BWO Emerger #18-20, Olive Soft Hackle #18-20, Tan or Grey Ray Charles #16-18, Olive or Orange BH Scud #16

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no
    backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  • how to get help in windows 10,

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    Appreciate it!
