Reflections and Ice cream cones on Crane Prarie Reservoir

On Saturday of this Memorial Day Holiday, Lou Verdugo, Caddis Fly employee/guide and Ken Crangle, set out for Crane Prairie for an afternoon of fishing. Using Scientific Anglers “Stillwater” 5wt lines they headed out from Rock Creek launch toward Rocky Point on a gray day.

Fly selection for the day was a mini bugger with a trailing Ice cream cone chironomid. The day began using bobbers with suspended flies, but that technique was abandoned as the results were negative. However, using a very slow trolling retrieve, they were able to hook up on a smaller size Cranebow, including one nice brookie.

The weather proved to be the greatest challenge of the day, as wind and thunder began to increase in the afternoon. Although the results were fair at best, the scenic beauty of the surrounding Cascades created a great place to reflect on the meaning of the Memorial Day Holiday. -LV
