Crane Prairie has been relatively tough this season

Fly and Field Outfitters

Report Date:

Crane Prairie has been relatively tough this season. It has improved since earlier on in the year but we have not heard many reports of people have excellent fishing up there. The good reports we have heard have typically been 3-5 fish days. Balanced leeches, chironomids, callibaetis nymphs and damsels are what have been effective. Callibaetis dries have been working  on some of the larger hatch days. Stripping or wind drifting flies is also a great way to cover some water and find some willing fish.
