Spring like weather has the bugs happy! When the bugs are happy, the fish are happy. Midges and BWOs are hatching, and the fish are eating them. Below the Crystal River flows are showing a bit of color from the warm temps, but fishing has been excellent. Floating is still limited to rafts. Nymphing generally has been most sucessful but some streamer has been producing fishing some action.

We check the river daily and our guides are fishing it if they can, give us a quick call for updated info before heading our direction. 

Flies:

Dries: 18-20 adams, para olive Gulper wulff, 20 Spent Midge, Morgans Para Midge.
Nymphs: 18-20 mayhem,18-20 Magnymphico, 18-20 Mighty May 18-22 RS2, PTs of all sorts, Prince, Pats, FFKA, Copper Johns, Eggs, GB Epoxy Stone
Streamers:Dark and smaller..

The cooler weather has cleared the Fork nicely all the way to Glenwood. It will be good fishing while the overnight cold persists.

Try small baetis such as the FPA Sparkle Baetis, the FPA Thorax Emerger, and black pheasant tails have also worked well. For emergers, the rs2 in black or gray. Also the sparkle wing rs2.

For small flies, copper johns, pc phlash, mercury rs2's, pheasant tails, bubble back bwos.

For the stone fly nymphs good patterns continue to include the BB FB Epoxy 20 Incher, the BTB Hot Spot 20 Incher and the CTB RL Epoxy 20 Incher.

Try streamers now as well.
