The Funky Pan is a great option during runoff; when the rest of the state is flowing chocolate milk, you can be fishing gin clear water for big trout. Flows just came down to around 200cfs after holding around 600 for the past few days. In the upper reaches of the river, earlier in the morning seems to be the best time of day right now for a big Mysis fed freak of nature. The flats hold big fish but be mindful of your feet as there are many fish spawning in this section year round. As the day warms up smaller #18-22 BWO and Midge nymphs will do well, both in the upper and middle reaches of the river. Proper weight and inconspicuous indicators will help you land that fish of a lifetime on the Pan. You may see some sparse Caddis, but BWO's still seem to be the mainstay hatch bringing fish to the surface right now. Possibility to grab a few big boys on the dry. A good drag free drift is crucial, and 6x will pull significantly more eats than 5x. Look for consistent risers, wait and find their pattern, lay in a good cast and get ready to live! 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, but don't be afraid to throw some larger Golden Stone patterns as well. Hatches are better during overcast and stormy days. Caddis Larva and pupa droppers are a good bet if you find yourself seeing a decent number of naturals fluttering along the surface. A well skated or dead dried elk hair caddis tan #16 can entice some savage strikes in the lower reaches of river. As flows continue to go up around the state, look for the pan to be a great option for high-water.
