Extreme cold temperatures keep the reservoir closed during the winter months. Be prepared for mother nature while visiting this spot. Temperatures can vary 40 degrees in the course of one day. The arid, desert-like climate is hot during the day, but cool during the evening. Flowing into the reservoir is the Frying Pan River, an excellent place for catch and release fishing. Well known to Fly Fisherman, you can attempt to capture rainbow trout, some as large as 10 pounds, on the Frying Pan River. Serious bikers will want to take the Rocky Fork Trail to Smuggler Valley Loop, which runs all the way to Aspen, Colorado. Located just a mile north east of Ruedi Reservoir is the small town of Meredith. With a population under 100, Meredith will get you away from the stress of a big city, and you can relax without noise pollution.
