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.
