Crowley Lake Fishing Report
Crowley Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)
by Tom Loe
Some low pressure, wind, and precipitation came through and slowed down the midge hatches some. At this time of the season though, it is not a major factor in regards to the bite. The perch fry have now reached 3″ in length and smaller and are still taking a beating from the trout. If you are not getting grabs where you are anchored and others around you are, it’s time to move.
Assassins/Parallel Assassins and Punk Perch/Parallel Punk Perch, both dark and light in sizes #14-16 have been getting some nice grade fish. Midges like our Broken Back Dark Zebras #18, Broken Back Dark Tiger Midge #18, Crystal Tiger Midge Long #18, and Crystal Caddis Larva Olive Dubbed #18 – Black, have been hammering the fish when they are close to the bottom. Best areas have been the north arm, Layton Springs, Alligator Point, McGee Bay and Crooked Creek.
