Current Conditions at Frying Pan:


The Pan has cleared back up and is still fishing well. Nymphing remains solid with fish taking eggs, midges and mysis. This is a great time to get a dry fly fix on the flats. Fish are looking up around 11 -2 and you can have some fun casting small dries in shallow water.   It is getting closer to winter and the fish are turning on to the midges again. Try fishing a Money Midge (size 18-22) for best results. The days are getting shorter and the weather is drastically cooling down.   The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 36-39 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
