Roaring Fork River

Flow: 133cfs/Aspen (Jaffe Park), 283cfs/Basalt, 574cfs/Glenwood Springs

Conditions: Fall fishing is here! The Roaring Fork is fishing very well from top to bottom right now! After a few slow weeks recently, the fishing has really turned back on with the cooler weather. BWOs are the name of the game in the way of hatches and fly imitations. November is the big spawning month for the rivers resident brown trout and whitefish. That said, the streamer and egg fishing has been improving each and every day. The window is short and the fishing will taper off in few weeks – get in on it now!
