Fly anglers report good fishing with dry-dropper setup
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The Crooked River is flowing at 187 cfs below Bowman Dam. Fly anglers report good fishing with dry-dropper setups.
Deschutes District analyzed data from Crooked River fish population monitoring using mark-recapture methods and boat electrofishing. The 2022 estimate for redband trout and mountain whitefish were just over 2,000 and 7,000 fish/mile, respectively. This is slightly below average for trout and higher than average for whitefish.
Crooked River anglers may encounter bull trout now that there is volitional passage at Opal Springs. Anglers who catch a bull trout should release it unharmed and report their catch to the US Fish and Wildlife Service at email@example.com.
