Dave and I fished the Crooked River today and yesterday. The weather was absolutely amazing – not to mention the scenery. We had temperatures in the low 60’s and plenty of sun. It was hard to believe it was November.
We pre-dominantly fished sub-surface using EuroNymphing Techniques with a 10 foot and 11 foot 3 wt Grey’s Streamflex. Both of us found using a sighter indicator verus a slinky to be more effective. At a CFS of about 55 this was the technique to use. Dave did dry fly fish today for a little bit. We got ton’s of fish in the 8 to 12 inch range sub surface. Flies that worked #18 BWO bubble back, # 16 Sparkle Caddis Pupa, #16 Double D, #16 My little Deschutes fly (pheasant tail with a purple thorax), #16 psycho mayfly, # 14 to #16 grey and light brown soft hackles, and a #14 green rock worm.
