While growing up in Colorado in the 50's-80's I spent many of those years in the Basalt and Reileys Ranch along the Frying Pan, even before the resivior was built, and learned how to fish the river and even to this day, Still consider the area my Home away from Home. Can any of your members send mew pictures of the river as it now looks from Basalt to the resivior (Rudi) and also reserch a place I used to stay with my dad, called Reilys Ranch along the tiver about 10 miles (I think) from Basalt. I would also like to know if anyone remembers the Lucksinger family that had a lake and a parcel of ranch land above the town of Basalt? I in later years learned that they sold the property to the state of Colorado and the lake was used as a hatchery for trout populations for the entire area. Would really like to know if the Lucksinger clan is even in any phone directories in the area?
Thank you all very much.
