Issues on the Fryingpan River?

October 1, 2013

The Aspen Daily News is reporting potential issues on the Fryingpan River near Basalt, CO and a multi-pronged assessment by the Roaring Fork Conservancy to better understand what is going on. The initial alarm was raised by fly fishing guides on the river. 

“When the first reports started to trickle in about something unusual on the Fryingpan River, Sharon Clarke thought a few fishermen were simply having bad days on the river.  The hatches were occurring below the Ruedi Reservoir dam, but there was a lack of the insects in the mid-river portion above Basalt.  The Fryingpan for about four months last year flowed only at 39 or 40 cubic feet per second (cfs), the minimum instream requirement, compared to a winter average of 70 to 100 cfs. Low winter flows impact rivers in two ways, Clarke said. It leads to the buildup of anchor ice that, when it breaks free, “basically scrapes the bottom of the river,” she said. That can damage aquatic vegetation and the survival rates of the insects, which, in turn, can be detrimental to fish.”

Keep Your Eyes On The Flows

As this big storm begins to dissipate we highly recommend that you do a bit more additional research before you head out the door.  There are still many areas of Colorado that are under flash flood advisory.  The Colorado Office of Emergency Management is a solid resource to pay attention to over the next few days.  It has fairly regular updates on conditions and road closures.  

Also, when you decide to go fishing, use our Stream Flows page to make sure you have an understanding of current flows and water levels.
