Chassahowitzka/Homosassa/Crystal River Fly Fishing Report
Over the last month plus, I've been finding big trout mixed in with my Reds. Ive been consistently getting shots a Trout in the shallows while Red fishing. Soon enough that will taper off but i love it when its going on. Also over the last week or 2 the Snook have moved back onto the flats. I have yet to stick one but have had shots every trip since they showed up. An inshore slam can likely be caught in under 20" of water. It doesn't get much better then that. Almost all winter I've been throwing crab and shrimp patterns but i just started to throw a baitfish pattern more often(pictured below). What a great time of year to be on the water, soon enough the migratory fish will show up including the Silver King. Remember to practice catch and release when you can and if you do plan on taking fish do not take more then you can eat.
