Crystal River

The Crystal River with Mt. Sopis In the background - Roaring Fork Anglers

From its headwaters above the town of Marble, the Crystal River flows unobstructed to its rendezvous with the Roaring Fork in Carbondale. Although not as famous as its neighboring rivers, the Crystal has many of the same hatches found on the Pan and Fork, without the crowds. An intimate river for the wade fisherman, it fishes best during early spring, summer and fall. This small river has good populations of Brown and Rainbow Trout along with the Mountain Whitefish. While matching the hatch will surely be successful, attractor patterns in both nymphs and dries are usually all that's needed to fool these strong fish.
