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 

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