Crane Prairie Reservoir
What to Expect in May
Hatches divided by half-month.
Super Major Minor Slight None
Crane is generally not a good early season producer due to cold water. However, you might try fishing in the snaggy areas with a Woolly Bugger with lots of rainbow Krystal Flash in the tail. That's a good way to pick up the lake's brook trout. Brookies are more tolerant of cold water than rainbows. Unfortunately, there's not many of them left.
