Colorado Stream Update: Fishing has been consistent on the Frying Pan. It has been cold so bundle up and be prepared to de-ice your rod guides.

Current Conditions at Frying Pan:

Nymphing the slower sections of water with midge larvae has been productive. Eggs, Small Stones, Mysis and BWO Nymphs have also been hooking fish on the Frying Pan. The weather is forecasted to warm up over the next few days which should make fishing conditions more comfortable. The traffic has gotten a little heavier but you can still find plenty of water to fish. Don't be afraid to throw a streamer in the mix. Small natural colored Slump Busters are good patterns to move through pocket water.

An egg makes a great point fly during the winter months.  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 28-31 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
