Frying Pan River at It's Finest!
Frying Pan River Winter Trip March, 2009
Our Frying Pan Video....check it out, it's a nice bit and a longer piece is on the way.
When it's late February, you're ready for a break from the slopes or in search of great fishing...where do you go? None other than the Frying Pan River near Basalt Colorado.
What makes this place so unique is the fact that it's a year round gold medal fishery located right in our backyard. Well, sometimes that backyard has a lot of snow in it, but every so often you get lucky enough to hit it just right and Wham! Perfect weather, few crowds, epic hatches and most importantly.....awesome fishing!
Everyone it seems caught a fair amount of fish which averaged anywhere between 15-30 fish days, that's a good day for anyone during the Summertime, but for Winter Wow!!
Time for a beer break, yes the snow was cold enough to keep my Alaska Pale Ale's cold but the warm weather out evened it all out.
Todd didn't have any problems catching fish, than again he never does. This is one of many fine Rainbows he caught fishing the lower section on Friday. Casey also with a very nice Bow that put a good fight to his 3wt, I bet you'll get that 5 weight back out again fishing that Honey Hole I told you and Todd to hit. These guys got an extra day on us and had a few stories to tell at the Cabin Friday night. These guys tore it up on Friday and from their expressions that night, I think everyone was eager to hit the water early Saturday for more incredible fishing.
