Opening Fish Report
The 2022 Crowley season opened
up with beautiful weather,
and no wind. Temps were in the mid 60's, with
fish being caught. The second day started out
but the wind came up early and blew everyone off the
by 9:00 am.
The winds finally died off during the first week
resulting in pretty
good fishing. The water started out crystal
clear, and around
52 degree's. The fish were all along the north
McGee Bay, through Sometimes Bay, and up towards
And the best part, they were in 13 to 14 feet of
Copper Tigers, and Albinos were working the best.
The second weekend had some very windy
nobody was able to get out on the water. The
winds are slowly
backing off after this front came down from the
north, but it's
going to get COLD for a few days. Lows around
20°, with highs
in the mid 40's to 50, and possible snow
things will get back to normal for the second half
of this week.
Although, the fish may move out a bit deeper.
Last season it
seemed the fish moved 3 or 4 feet deeper after each
that came through.
I think we are going to get a repeat of last
season. We again
have VERY low water levels due to the lack of snow
winter. This usually means a bad algae bloom
in July. The low
water will heat up again in August causing the fish
to be deep
and lethargic all summer. Get in as much
fishing as you can in
May & June, and then, you may have to wait till
the water starts
cooling in September, October.
