Crane Prairie at a ten year water high, fishing is fair

Caddis fly employee Ty Holloway spent yesterday at Crane. Despite recent shoulder surgery his hunt for big fish could not be disuaded.


He used Ice Cream Cone chironomids black with red rib size #10 under a small Thingamabobber indicator. Ty’s rig was a 9ft 3x full flourocarbon tapered leader plus 3ft of 3x flouro tippet to his first fly. Another 3ft of tippet off the bend of that fly to another chironomid of another color or size.


Fish were caught in the channels. Channel depth maxed out at 16ft, with channel edges being around 11 feet. Water temps in the deeper portions of the channels made the difference. Position yourself to fish the deeper sections.-CD
