The legendary fly fishing of Crowley Lake near Mammoth Lakes California has been going on with a bang this May! Of course, a few slow days followed by some on fire ,0-100mph hook up days have happened these last few weeks. Fish have been found all around the lake to the North End of Crowley at around 16-20ft of water at this time. The normal Crowley flies have been very successful. A stomach pump recently revealed black/grey/white midges in sizes around #14-18 with some possible larger members being seen. All three species of fish (Brown Trout, Cutthroats, and Rainbow Trout) as well as perch have been coming to our nets. Making for a great start to our Crowley season!
Crowley Lake continues to dazzle us with big trout of all three varieties been brought to hand every time we are out there. Cutthroat, Rainbow, and Brown trout are being boated daily in many different parts of the lake. Perch fry, and many sorts and color varieties of Chironomids have continued to take fish. The algae bloom seems to be holding off for the moment as the air temperature was much cooler this morning when we arrived.
