Patterns for Frying Pan, Roaring Fork & Colorado in late October?
 
Heading to the above areas last week of October. I plan to buy plenty of flys there but would also like to tie up a few to take with me. Looking for some good general patterns for the time and area.

Thanks

Pan:
Mysis, midges, bwo, pmd, and emergers
Fork:
Midges, small stones, baetis, and bwo
Colorado:
Mayfly, small stones, midge and baetis

Also, don't be afraid to sling some streamers. October is brownie spawning time and they get aggressive. Although late october might be too late, but I would still have some handy if nymphing isn't working.

There will typically be a midge hatch or bwo hatch on the Pan and Fork depending on the weather. Think small. size 22, 24 dries or rs2's fished in the film will work.
