Colorado Stream Update: Bigger water on the Frying Pan and it is expected to increase over the next week. Good time to fish Mysis Shrimp Patterns.

Current Conditions at Frying Pan:

Nymphing with Mysis Shrimp is going to be your best shot at hooking the larger Rainbow Trout that swim in the Frying Pan. Be sure to have various sizes and colors of Mysis Shrimp patterns and do not be afraid to throw tandem shrimp. Other patterns to be tossing are small midge larvae and baetis nymphs, RS2's, JuJu Baetis and small PT's are good go to flies. With the increased flows focus your fishing efforts in the softer pockets and seams. The high flows also have most of the lower river difficult to fish so expect most of the anglers to be near the dam section. Streamer fishing is also a good technique to employ during the higher water. Keep moving and hit all the water you can. Small Slump Busters and Sculpin imitations are moving a lot of fish.

The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Crystal Clear.
