Crane Prairie has been fishing fair. As the season progresses so have the reports out of Crane. The last few weeks we have heard better reports than the majority of the season and a few people have reported excellent days. Balanced leeches, damsels, chironomids and callibaetis will all be important to have and try out. Focus your efforts on the channels where the water is 2-3 feet deeper than average and a bit cooler. Stripping flies on an intermediate line is also a good way to cover some water and find some willing fish.
