The usual places have been producing some nice fish with the upper arm being the most productive. So far this Fall the lake has been fishing consistantly. Flies to use are black or olive tiger midges, crystal midges or zebra midges. For those of you that are pulling streamers, matukas, hornbergs, wooly buggers black or olive and leach patterns are good bets.

Fished Crowley Lake from shore (Greenbanks and Crooked Creek) the weekend of Nov 7th / 9th. Algea still floating from shore out about 10 to 15 ft. Fished mostly a dead drift presentation. With an indicator between 12 ft and 9 ft above the bottom fly, just had to find where the fish were. Fished a 3 fly combo with either a leech pattern or punk perch as the top fly. Tried many different flies as the middle and bottom fly. Midges seemed to work best though there was really no hatch going off. Caught a 4 lb rainbow about 24" on a grey midge. Caught a 20" brown on a brown Leech. Caight a couple on a red black midge with red ribbing with a white head.  Didnt catch a lot of fish but what we caught were quality fish.
