Why Winter Fly Fishing Is Great in Aspen!
Winter is one of our favorite times of year to fly fish here on the Roaring Fork River! Many people think of fly fishing as a warm weather affair, but the winter means less fishermen and more fish for those willing to get out there. Ski season isn’t quite in full swing — in fact it’s off to a pretty slow start this year — so the next few weeks are the perfect time to get out and discover the wonders of winter fly fishing. Snow-covered banks, icicles dripping with sunlight, and the dazzling flashes of a wild trout tugging on your line in clear cold water. It’s a magical experience, and once you try it, you may find yourself reaching for a fly rod instead of your skis!
