Things are shaping up beautifully on the North Fork. Still tough wading, but much more accessible at these flows. No real snow to prevent you from getting around. Looks like it is going to keep on the slow drop for the forseeable future and the fishing has been good and should just get better. Big chernobyl/stonefly type flies with either a nymph dropper or smaller dry fly behind it should be very good in the afternoons. Double nymphing or streamer fishing will work if the fish aren't looking up or you are starting earlier in the day! Be safe and good luck!

Dropping like a rock. Still high, but should start being a better option by next week. Boat races this weekend so the lower river will be packed anyway.

High and muddy over here today. 27000 cfs at St. Regis and still going. A few weeks until this becomes an option again.
Rocky Ford is always an option this time of year for those who need a trout fix. Warming up watch for ticks and rattlers.
The Lakes are warming up and so is the fishing. This will be your best bet for the next couple weeks, but that's okay since they have been fishing well. Smaller lakes have been good, but the bays of the bigger lakes are picking up with the warmer water temps. Wooly buggers and leaches under an indicator or stripped should get strikes. Bass are moving in and Pike are cruising the shallows!

caliber of fish that are in Crab Creek - "any big rainbow that is in a
tiny little creek" - they are impressive!
