Gold Medal fishing still on Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers

Fly Fishing The second longest consecutive stretch of gold medal trout fishing in Colorado is the lower Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers 42 miles. It was the longest for many years, but was overtaken by a new 102 mile stretch of the Arkansas River from Leadville to near the Royal Gorge due to many years of restoration. Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout are plentiful even up the Crystal River. Sometimes I wish that I had the patience to fish, but I would rather go rafting. With a great snow season for ski resorts there should be a great rafting season ahead.
