Default Re: best crappie fly ?

on bright sunny days, use darker colors, blk/chart is a good one, on cloudy/overcast days, go lighter in color. Sometimes red/chart or blue/chart is the color of the day. Crappie feed on what is above them, if its below 'em, forget it. Anything that will mimic a minnow (minner here in E TN) will get some interest. The spawn is close to being over here, so fish will be/are moving back out to deeper water, and scattered. If you have a boat with depth finder, look for structure or ledges, humps, bumps, blowdowns, etc., and you could find 'em. Sometimes they hug the bottom, other times they are suspended at 7' in 10 or 15 FOW.
