Fishing South Fork and Creede

I haven't had much chance to get out and sample the area lakes and rivers lately but the people I have talked to say its still going hot and heavy with limits from the waters the norm. The same patterns prevail with the gulp brand beads working in the lakes.

Nothing beats the elk hair caddis for me this time of year but I also use a dropper with a prince nymph about 18 inches below the dry fly.  

The rains are going to start having an effect on the fishing soon as the water cools and dirties even more. The Rio and the South Fork of the Rio are running bank full and it rained most of today in those drainages so look for them to come up over night.

SO if you want to catch fish, get out there while its still warm enough to enjoy the day.
