ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - State officials have determined there are enough big trout in the lower Fryingpan and lower Roaring Fork rivers to keep their Gold Medal Trout Waters designation.

A survey conducted by Colorado Parks and Wildlife last fall confirmed the findings.

According to the Aspen Times (http://tinyurl.com/ksbzq23 ), a 13-mile stretch of the Fryingpan River from Ruedi Dam to the confluence with the Roaring Fork River is designated Gold Medal Trout Water as well as the Roaring Fork River from Basalt to the confluence with the Colorado River. All told, that’s a 42-mile stretch.

To get the honor, a body of water must have a minimum standing trout stock.
