Not much has changed on the Crooked, and nymphing has continued to produce good numbers of fish on a consistent basis. For those who’d prefer to fish dries there is good opportunity to throw mayfly attractor or spinner patterns in the late evening. As always a good mix of small-medium sized Rainbows and Whitefish provide most of the action, but we’ve been seeing Rainbows in the 14-16” range or larger a little more frequently then we have in the past. The days are long and warm, and there is no better option than the Crooked for an afternoon or evening of throwing dries to hungry trout after a day of work. Make the most of the great weather and long hours of light while they’re here!
