This months Fish-A-Long will be held Saturday March 24th on the Crooked River by Prineville.
The plan: meet at Big Bend Campground about 1 mile below Bowman Dam between 8am and 9am. Coffee and doughnuts will be provided.
Gear: 3 to 6wt rods with matching reel & floating lines. Dry fly fishing can be good with Midges and Baetis dominating the hatches this time of year. Another standby technique is Indicator Nymphing with small glo- bugs (they look like scuds) and/or standard nymphs like Pheasant Tails and Hair’s ears. This is also a good place to swing soft hackles or small woolly buggers.
Waders with felt or cleated boots for slippery, moss covered rocks and layered clothing as it will likely be cold in the morning.
Lunch: Lunch will be provided.
This is a great time to fish the Crooked River for trout and whitefish. Fishing can be excellent!

Talked to a some friends fro, the Central Oregon Flyfishers at the expo in Albany about the Crooked and how it is fishing. They said it is flowing low and the most productive fly sizes are in the size 18 and 20 range. Not much being caught on anything bigger. They also said that the nymphing was working best.
Thanks Phil, that’s good to know and we’ll put your info to good use this weekend!
