I’d expect that things have slowed down a little on the Crooked with the colder weather we’ve had. A light nymph set-up with small BWO and Midge patterns will certainly find fish, and there is still opportunity to find fish rising to Midges or BWOs in the early-mid afternoon. Right now the most challenging part of fishing the Crooked will be finding a place to park in all of the snow. The main road should be plowed, but there probably isn’t much in the way of pull-offs.
