Open all year, the Wild and Scenic Crooked River at Chimney Rock provides easy access to pocket water and deep pools filled with native Redband Trout and Mountain Whitefish. Favorite flies are small (#18 & less) BWO and midges. October (#12) and Mother’s Day (#14) caddis can provide exciting topwater action in their respective seasons. Scuds are also plentiful in this weedy and often stained stream.
