Crooked River - April 11th, 2013
supplied by: The Flyfishers Place
RECORDED:    55 °   FISHING: Fair
 It dropped to under 500 and under 500 if stable is fishable.

Bring some split shot, you'll want it to get the nymphs down.

Expect good BWO hatches mid day.

Today and Friday are supposed to be nice and then a cool down over the weekend which actually may slow down the runoff out of the Ochoco's so conditions could improve more but only time will will tell.

 The Bureau of Rec jacked the water to over 600. It might go higher. We should be up in arms as anglers over this management! They keep it at a trickle all winter and then BAM they screw it up.

RECORDED:    60 °   FISHING: Fair
 The Bureau of Rec (Wreck?) is f-ing with the water levels this week. How many Spring Breaks will they do this. It's been perfect all Winter and Spring and they bumped it to 140 from 75 on Tuesday and up to 170 again today. The levels are still low considering normal Summer flows are 225-250 cfs, but sudden bump is a shock to the fish. 

It's not horrible but it has slowed down and let's just hope it stabilizes. I don't think there is a lot of runoff potential with snow pack being a bit low in the Ochocco's and the Reservoir looked like it had holding capacity when I drove over it last week.

BWO's and Midges were and should hatch great. Little Nymphs are killer. We are recommending San Juan Worms and Bacon and Eggs with the higher flows it washes worms out and in the drift. Over the years higher water has hit we've had great luck with olive or black buggers on the swing.

 BWO hatches and nymphs are rocking it around 1 to 3 PM and the rest of the time midges seem to be the best. It is really good now.

RECORDED:    51 °   FISHING: Great
 The Spring Baetis hatch is really picking up. Look for the hatch of #18 and #20 BWO's between noon and 3. Also be prepared with some midge adults too anytime during the day.

Midge and small mayfly nymphs are rockin' it right now. Scuds, prince, hares ear and zug bugs are good bets too.

Crooked River - February 14th, 2013

RECORDED:    52 °   FISHING: Good
The water temps have become really cold and it has slowed the catch rates down. I guess the lake turned over and the water coming out of the dam is cold because water temps are coming out in the high 30's.

This week the fish have been taking small midges patterns and some BWO dries. Scuds and eggs are also a good choice.

RECORDED:    48 °   FISHING: Good
It's midge season on the Crooked. Midge larva and pupa patterns under an indicator, and midge emergers and adults as dries during the hatch are producing well.

There have been light BWO hatches but be ready for it if it happens on these warmer days again.

Scuds and other small nymphs have been producing great.

One awesome trick for this time of year is using a small black leech or black rufus. The fish tend to be more in the soft water pools and the leeches can drive them nuts.

Crooked River - January 10th, 2013
supplied by: The Flyfishers Place
RECORDED:    29 °   FISHING: Good
It's probably the best winter spot on any given day if for no other reason the number of trout per mile but also the weather patterns are so much kinder that far east compared to the Met and the Fall.

There are some midges and some BWO's hatching and when the dries are on top the fish are looking up.

Mostly though it's a nymph game in the pools below the riffles. Small mayfly nymphs and midge nymphs along with scuds and hares ears have been working well. Remember in shallow water to not put your indicator too far up the leader. Most of the time in this water level 2 or 3 feet is just right.

This report is actually written and copied from an email I got this morning from some customers. Enjoy!

Hey Jeff. We just wanted to send an email thanking you for taking the time to talk with us over the phone this morning. We went back out on the Crooked River for the second time today after talking with you. Air temp was 28 degrees. We started at Mile 12 where the sun was on the water, but no luck. We found another spot upstream with a nice tailout onto a slow section, tried various nymph combos, 0 fish. At 1:30 pm as we were ready to give up in frustration and drive home, we saw fish heads popping up through the water everywhere in that same slow section. We threw the nymps in again (beadhead upper nymph with zebra midge droppers) and caught a couple of fish; tried midge adults, emergers, cripples etc. with no success, then put on the BWOs and caught a couple of fish. The action stopped after about an hour. We drove back down the road to milepost 12 and stopped at the slow section just below the cattle guard at 4pm. There were fish heads popping throught the water everywhere. We threw out the BWOs and oh my gosh, we caught fish like there was no tomorrow - we stopped counting after 12 at that one slow section!!! It got so dark we could barely see and we were catching them just by feeling the tug on the line. Jeff, thank you so much, again, for talking with us this morning. We needed someone we knew and could trust to give us some advice and encouragement. Those BWOs did the trick. What a great day on the Crooked River! Please say "Hi" to Steve for us. Best regards, and Happy New Year, Jeff and Wendy

RECORDED:    31 °   FISHING: Good
Winter has arrived in Central Oregon with some snow showers here at the shop in Sisters, but things are a bit more mellow east of here and the Crooked is very do-able with just a small amount of snow.

Fish are being caught in good numbers on nymphs throughout the day and on dries around 1 PM with BWO's and midges being most important.

Keep some little BWO nymphs handy and some eggs and scuds.
