The Crooked always fades a bit in summer; it's not a good hot weather stream. If you go, take size 14-18 orange Scuds, size 12-16 Prince nymphs, and size-14 Cased Caddis patterns. Micro Mayflies are another option, as are Sprout Midges in size 20-22.

You should also carry small dry flies, such as size 18-20 Parachute Adams, Elk Hair Caddis , and Griffiths Gnat.

For more information on July fishing, see the Rivers section of the General Oregon Report
