Roaring Fork River Fishing Report - December 02, 2016
The conditions continue to be good. The river level is a little low but that makes it
easy to wade about anywhere you want to wade. The lower section and water below
the Frying Pan Confluence is warmer than the water in the upper elevations. Midges
and little Blue-winged olives are still the most important insects to imitate.
