Crane Prairie is fishing better but still slower than average for this time of year. The fish that are coming out of Crane are nice and healthy but not many people are finding typical numbers of fish. Callibaetis have been around on some days and we have heard reports of people picking up fish on dries. Nymphing with balanced leeches and chironomids has been producing fish. Stripping buggers, leeches or chironomids is also effective and a good way to cover some water and find some willing fish.
