Fryingpan, Funkypan, Cryingpan, or just the Pan as its called is a great option during runoff when the rest of the state is playing in chocolate milk, you can be fishing gin clear water for big trout. The flows just went up and mysis are always on the menu in the first 1/4 mile or so. Earlier in the mornings are best for a mysis or right at the toilet bowl. The flats hold big fish but be mindful of your feet as there are many fish spawning in this section. As the day warms up smaller #18-22 BWO and Midge nymphs will do well. Proper weight and inconspicuous indicators will help you land that fish of a lifetime up there. BWO's are hatching 10am-3pm. Possibility to grab a few big boys on the dry. A good drag free drift with either 5 or 6x with the latter getting more eats. Look for consistent risers, wait and find their pattern, lay in a good cast and get ready to live! Eggs are on the menu as fish are spawning both in the river and in Rudi Res above. Lower down in the canyon the fishing pressure goes down and the fishing heats up. Short leash nymph rigs or dry dropper rigs will do. There are good hatches down low with a higher chance of sticking one on the dry. BWO's and midges will pull fish to the surface. Hatches are better during overcast and stormy days. Caddis are starting to come off lower down in the canyon as well. Larva and pupa droppers are a good bet if you are in them. A well skated or dead dried elk hair caddis tan #16 can entice some savage strikes from these big bows. As flows go up around the state, look for the pan to be a great option for high-water.

Casting a fly in a tranquil mountain stream, feeling the tug on the line, and holding a beautiful rainbow trout makes us feel alive and intensely connected with nature. Fly fishing is our way of life and we are blessed with hundreds of nearby rivers and streams just a short distance away from Boulder.

We rely on our experienced guides who venture into the wild to let us know which rivers favor fly fishing, where fish are biting, and which fly patterns are most effective.
