We went up to visit my son Mark this weekend. They live up in Basalt, about 15 minutes down valley from Aspen, within earshot of the Frying Pan River, and walking distance to where the Frying Pan and the Roaring Fork converge. We took a little time to fish as a part of this trip, and it was the first time in a long time I had even picked up a pole. Mostly I took pictures and just listened to the gorgeous sound of running water, but Mark and his wife, in the one hour that we were there, landed 8 fish! This stretch of water is mostly catch and release, barbless hooks, only 2 fish 14 inches or less can be kept, but what a fun little outing! Some of my clients come from places where fishing is one of their favorite hobbies, and I just thought I should let everyone know, this was really fun.
It was a hot weekend in the Springs, when we returned last night it was still 88 degrees, but thankfully we are back into the 70’s for the rest of this week, so we never really were bothered by it.
