Crooked River

Tip of the week 

Dry fly fishing with a dropper fly works well. Our favorite dry is a purple haze or parachute adams. Our favorite droppers are zebra midge, WD-40, or BWO emerger. Fishing two flies underneath a strike indicator is also effective. Lead with a pheasant tail or a prince nymph. Egg patterns have still been working well too. Use a BWO emerger, zebra midge, or RS-2 as the dropper.

Seven-day forecast 

Expect the fishing to remain good for the next few weeks, now that the river level has stablized.

As the summer grows on, look for mayfly and midge patterns to be your best producers.
