"Stillwaters"

Of the watershed options available to me in the Eastern Sierras, I have always chosen a river over a lake.  I'm not really a stillwater guy. But, with the last few drought years here in California I have decided to give Crowley Lake a shot.

I've had a great run exploring this excellent fishery. I haven't decided if I have fully converted to the "stillwater" game. But it is definitely appealing when the chromid hatch is in full force and the bigs are crashing schools of perch fry in the shallows.

Yo Tyler! Looks like there are some worthy specimen in that lake. So they eat small bugs and little bait?

Yeah I've been fishing in short water 5-10 feet with size 14-16 chronomid patterns and size 14 perch fry imitations.

Solid work bud. I'd like to tap into that fishery someday.
