Colorado Stream Update: Flows continue to drop

Current Conditions at Frying Pan:

Flows on the Frying Pan are currently sitting around 85 CFS. Lower flows require even more dialed presentations. Small tippets and flies are a must, a good nymph setup should find most fish. Small PTs, WD-40s, and RS2 are good choices. Disco midges, top-secrets and black beauties as well. Small tippets and tight drifts are a must, but depth is just important. Be sure your flies are in the right feeding column! Browns are spawning so please fish ethically.

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.  Winter is around the corner and soon you can have the Frying Pan and the Taylor all to yourself!  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
