The fishing at Lake Crowley has been excellent this fall

Crowley Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

No boats, no problem! The shore fishing along sections of the lake with steep drop-offs have been providing some great opportunities. Six Bays, the Hiltons, & Crooked Creek are all holding concentrations of fish. Tubers and shore fly fishers are doing well using still water nymphing and streamer tactics. Loebergs, leeches, seal buggers, punk perch, & agent orange streamers are good calls. Use broken back midges, crystal emergers, crystal pupa, zebra and tiger midges below an Under-cator. Fish are in 6-12 feet depending on location. Lake closes 11-15 for the season.
