Boxwood and Long Meadow opening delayed until May 11

Anglers — We are sorry for the delayed opening but we just don’t have enough water. It’s still very cold at higher elevations and the snow melt has been slow to get started. And Denver Water is not running water thru Roberts Tunnel because they don’t need the water in Denver. All of this contributes to […]


Boxwood/Long Meadow will reopen on May 1, 2020

We were anticipating being able to open in April but now that seems too early.There is lots of ice and snow and we don’t know when Denver Water will start running water from Dillon Reservoir through Roberts Tunnel. We do feel confident that no matter what Denver Water does Mother Nature will provide enough snow […]
