The fishing this fall is fantastic in the Aspen area. 

There has been good success on the Roaring Fork both up and down valley.   Fishing on the fork has been best midday as the evenings have been in the low 30’s.  Fall has arrived.  

Close to Aspen nymphing with small midges is the order of the day.  Black and red are classic colors, fishing may be somewhat better down valley.

On the Fryingpan fall has arrived as well with both baetis and midge patterns working effectively.  The higher on the river you go the smaller the flies as well as tippets.  Keep it small with black being my favorite…  The bite is on from approximately 10-4 and slows but does not stop later in the afternoon.
