Colorado Stream Update: Good dry fly activity through out the day. The Crowds have gotten heavier with the recent rain storms so be prepared to see some other anglers.

Current Conditions at Frying Pan:

Midge and PMDs have got a lot of fish looking up. Yellow and Light Pink PMDS are good patterns to be presenting on the surface later in the afternoon with the midge hatch dominating the scene earlier in the morning. If you are struggling with takes try lengthening and lightning your leader. Great flows for this time of year!!! Find the soft water and look for rising fish. Angling pressure has increased with the recent rain fall so get to the river early or late to avoid the heavy crowds. Nymphing the deeper seams & shallow riffles with midges, soft hackle PT's and baetis emergers is making the bobber jiggle. Now is a excellent time to fish the Frying Pan.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
