Frying Pan River- 11/23/09

Took the week of from work to use up vacation time. First trip of the week is to the Frying Pan river. Looked at forecast on Sunday night, almost wimped out. My friend Duane changed my mind. We met at the parking lot at I-70 and hogback at a little before 4:00am. The roads where not to bad, it was snowing from about Georgetown to the other side of Vail. We arrived at the Frying pan River about 7:45am, geared up and headed on to the flat. It was chilly, and a little breezy. The fishing was good. Browns seam to be on the flat in spawning mode. No monsters just a lot of good fish. I only caught a couple of rainbows, mostly browns. Fished to about 2:45pm then headed back. Great day, good company.

There was 2 different flies working well, orange egg and red mercury midge.

The picture above was from last years trip, this years trip was much of the same.
