Chapter fishing trip to Crystal Lake June 23

Crystal-Lake_026

Richard Pilatzke will lead a chapter fishing trip to Crystal Lake on June 23.  Crystal lake is located about five miles from Leadville on the upper Arkansas drainage.  It is an easily accessible lake with good shore access, but float tubes and pontoon boats are allowed.  The elevation of the lake is just over 9000 feet.  It has great callibaetis mayfly and damsel hatches and we expect lots of dry fly action.  It is a great lake for beginning and intermediate fly fishers.  Richard will tie several fly patterns for Crystal Lake at June’s Chapter Meeting this Tuesday, June 19th at 6:30pm (meeting details).
