Chance Maxwell~~ It had been over a year since I had been on Crane Creek but after the rain event we got a few weeks back, I couldn’t resist so a buddy and me snuck over to check on the McClouds. The rain event definitely moved some gravel around. Changed some holes for the better and some for the worse. The RR trestle is totally backed up again with driftwood. Overall, the creek got a much needed flush and looked amazing!

The fishing was great as it usually is when the water is up. The fish seemed to be holding in the riffles more than the deep holes this time around. The normal flies worked…big flashy nymphs. I did find myself changing flies more than normal on this trip but it was the same 3-4 flies. One particular fly would work in a spot but wouldn’t in the next. Change to a different pattern and would pick up fish. Kinda odd cuz usually I find 1-2 flies that work that particular day and stick with them. The fish looked great and very healthy. I love this place….

Took the GoPro along this time to do some filming. Finally sat down today and put a video together of the trip. Hope you guys enjoy it…

Chasing the Dream…
