If you want to catch a big Trout right now in the Eastern Sierra let's go fishing in Crowley Lake! From North to South ends we have been landing very large Lahonton Cutthroat, Rainbows, and Brown Trout. The key is fishing the right areas and knowing when to move on to the next area. Set your drag and kick up your 5x to 4 & 3x to hold on to these fish. The same patterns as my last Crowley report hold true. Some fish are being caught on perch fry, but not as many as previous years. This should continue for possibly another month as the cooler weather seems to be pushing the larger specimens around the lage to stock up for winter months.

Water Conditions: Lake levels are slowly dropping. 'Now at 6,758 ft versus 6,781 ft elevation at the spillway. We still have a ways to go as the islands just outside the marina have not yet popped out but getting close. Water temperature is holding at 64�F (on the bottom) uniformly almost everywhere on the lake. Water is almost crystal clear everywhere - zero algae. Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Fishing remains excellent everywhere on the lake with a few weeds and some slightly cooler water (inlets, springs) McGee Bay and North End in 8 to 14 ft of water but seems best along weed lines on north or east side. Hilton and Leighton are also holding some fish. Multiple 18" fish are common place for most anglers. Recommended Flies: Dubbed head red/black Optimidge has beat out the Albino Baron early then Copper Tiger as the sun gets overhead. Albino Baron will work all day when there is little or no hatch. Fewer hits but some 22"+ fish for those who want to try a Dubbed-head Olive Oprimidge in size 18 midday. Really big fish rearely go for the flashy colors in crystal clear water. I popped a 24" the other day. Stripping has been only so-so for the tubing set for some reason. Try a stillwater hare or trail a small PT or Hares Ear behind the usual Perch fry imitations - Hornberg's, Perfection Perch and Punk Perch. Be sure and just twitch it up slowley the last 10-15 ft just like a Midge or Callibaetis acending.
