Roaring Fork River offers ample fishing opportunities

Brevity breeds urgency. Hesitate and the peak weeks will be gone off the calendar before you can wake up and rub the winter sleep from your eyes. If you mentally long for summer days on the river, your daydreaming will skip the perfect season — spring.
Consider the resume of spring river fishing. Low water, accessible and wadeable. Clear water, providing trout a clean window to spot your offering. Warming water, where just a few degrees’ increase gets the trout moving around and the bugs they feed on to come out of hiding.
