    Default The Frying Pan & Roaring Fork Trip Report

    So I'm finally getting around to posting this report from 2 weeks ago...better late than never right?!

    I try to make it out to the mountains from the Midwest at least once a year, and having very close friends in Denver usually means that's where I am headed...

    We got to the river as the sun was just beginning to cast shadows on the canyon walls of the upper Pan. My tour guide was really excited to show us the pigs that resided in the Toilet Bowl and I figured, what the heck knowing full well that it's one of them tourist traps that you have to try at least once! I fished it for about 5 minutes and didn't hook into anything and decided to go explore a bit down river.

    I had a rough go at it for the first couple hours only turning heads and not hooking anything...oh well it was good to be out on new water that had a lot of potential. I knew it and decided to walk back up to the bowl and see what was happening with my buddy. There were 4 people fishing there and not one of them was catching anything...so it's not just me! Anyhow, with no fish to hand, I plop myself on a rock and watch, waiting for the evening hatch to start. By this time it's dusk and I look down to the flat water and see dimples, not a lot but at least there is finally some action. So I sneak down there quietly (I know I'm selfish) and watch closer...it's on and so is a PMD on my tippet. For the next 25 minutes I remember why I'm out here and why I fish...it was pure bliss with every 3rd cast producing a fish! It didn't stop there as the next day on the Pan and the following on the Fork were successful.

    Hi Greg,

    I for one am looking forward to the rest of the story. I understand the delayed posting of trips, my season won't be posted & blogged until things are over for the year.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Oh the pics bring back memories. I remember those spots well on the Pan. If only I lived closer...I don't think I would do anything else but fish. Thanks for sharing the photos.
