That’s right, February and early March are great months to get in the river and catch some trout. The Roaring Fork and Frying Pan rivers are Gold Medal rivers year round but this time of year, they are exceptional. You just need to know what to use to get them to rise and right now, the right bait is a midge as they are spawning right now in droves. Early late afternoon are great times to take advantage of the hungry fish below the ripples. Particularly after their long cold winter.
So grab your fly rod and your midge collection and head to Glenwood Springs and The Hotel Denver to have a nice winter fest in the rivers.
