There is a new golden eagle that has been taking advantage of the excellent fishing. The lake is starting to freeze finally so they may have to take off soon. This year there are quite a few more than usual so I guess the word has really gotten out about how many fish are in Crowley.
We got some more snow!!! The big storm of last week definately broke up prior to reaching the Sierra's but it did bring us some rain here at the lake and the hills got a bit of snow. Today we finally woke up to a decent covering here with more on the way. It's pretty cold too so it should stick around for awhile.
So far the mountains have a few feet of snow and we're in good shape for some water recovery here.
Opening Day of Trout Season is Saturday, April 25th, we will re-open the gates the Thursday before.

The end is near, but get up here one more time if you can! The fishing has been as awesome as we would expect for October.
Many thanks again to the Still Water Classic Participants, their generosity has supplied Crowley Lake with loads of these trophy rainbows!
Starting August 1st Crowley Lake begins a restricted fishing season. No live or scented bait is allowed, only artificial & barbless lures or flies can be used. You may only keep two trout and they must be at least 18 inches in length. There is no no change in the limit on perch, however the same fishing restrictions apply.
Although this changes how you fish Crowley, don't be intimidated! The fishing can be absolutely phonomenal in our second season for both fly-fisherman as well as trollers (not to mention a lot less traffic on the lake...)We have everything you need for a successful "barbless" day of fishing so come see us.
***Also, we will now be renting boats for half days, seven days a week!
