Roaring Fork

The Roaring Fork or “Thunder River” as the local Indians called her, drops more in elevation in its 70 mile descent than the Mississippi River does in 2500 miles! This fishery is known all over the world for its crystal clear waters filled with wild rainbow and brown trout. Starting near Aspen and dropping quickly to its headwaters with the mighty Colorado in Glenwood Springs, the “Fork” is a trout fisherman’s mecca.

Report Date: August 3rd, 2017

Ah the Fork… the Pan attracts all the crowds and the Fork gets over shadowed. The Fork has been stellar lately. All sections have been fishing well. Pick a section and explore some water. Large stones and PMDs have been popping off and producing good fish.

Pats rubber legs and grey RS2s have been the killer patterns lately. Runs, riffles, pocket water, etc, fish it all! If you’re looking for an area where you will hardly see other people fishing, this is the place to be right now!
