Crane Prairie has been improving but still fairly slow overall. Fish are being caught on balanced leeches, chironomid and damsel nymphs, and callibaetis nymphs. It doesn’t seem like the fish are keying in hard to the Callibaetis hatches yet but that will come. We have heard and seen some photos of some very nice fish coming out of crane but haven’t heard many stories this year of people having lights out fishing. We will see if that changes as the season progresses.
