Colorado Stream Update: Good flows for dry fly fishing. BWO's are still coming off in decent numbers giving us excellent dry fly opportunities.

Current Conditions at Frying Pan:

The crowds have slowed down but the fly fishing has not. Fish are coming to the surface and the dry fly fishing has been real consistent. Overcast days have been exceptionally good. #20 Sparkle Dun BWO #20 Olive Adams and Griffith's Gnats have all been taking fish on top. Look for the bulk of the hatch to come of later in the day. The streamer bite has also been decent. Make sure to cover plenty of water and think sparse when choosing a streamer pattern. We are getting snow in the high country so be careful driving on the Frying Pan road.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 32-35 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
