If you didn’t get a chance to do some fishing this past week, get out there this weekend! We have another front moving in at the beginning of next week, but the weekend is shaping up to be warm, sunny and glorious. Water temperatures should be on the rise, and the fish will be active. On sunny days with low water make sure you’re being stealthy, downsizing tippet and wearing sunscreen!
Aspen Outfitting Company’s Upper Roaring Fork River Report 3/3/23
Conditions have remained consistent this past week, and so has the fishing! Leading with perdigons, two bit hookers and Pat’s Runt Stones (size 14-16) and trailing small midge and baeits imitations has been the ticket. Fly selection is important, but we’re finding that fish are eating pretty readily as long as you get a good, drag free drift!

Going into the last 10 days of January, the fishing has been great! With cold temperatures and low flows in the Upper Fork, the fish are stacked up in slower, deeper water. Focus on deep holes and eddies near natural structure for the best results. During this time of the year, when you find one fish, you often find many — so make sure to cover water until you find success.

Snowpack and Our Watershed
After triple-digit accumulations of snow the last week of 2021, Aspen is a winter wonderland! Though we are just as excited as you are to be skiing fresh powder, we’re even more excited about what this snow means for our rivers. Having a healthy snowpack is incredibly important because snowmelt provides the cold, clean water that insects and fish need to survive during the spring and summer months.
Happy New Year!
As we enter the new year, we’re bursting with gratitude for all of the support you have shown us. It means the world to us as a small, family owned company that you voted us Best Fly Fishing Outfitter in Aspen for the fifth year in a row!
