FISHING SKINNY WATER AT CROWEY

Fishing in skinny water at Crowley has been on most occasions, nothing short of spectacular.   I have focussed my last 10 to 15 guided trips in shallow, clear and very technical waters.   I have been fishing early in the mornings under low light and low pressure in 5 to 6 feet of water.   Its so clear, you can read the weight of my anchor which is 22lbs.  In shallow water you need all of the help you can get.  Being very quite, less movement and above all else, low light and some wind on the water will trigger these fish to come alive.   The other important component, that is a monster factor, is tippet size.
