10 Reasons to Fish at Boxwood Gulch / Long Meadow


  1. Plenty of trophy-sized trout.
  2. The average size fish landed in 2011 was 19 inches. The largest, a 28.75 inch Rainbow, a 27 inch Brown, a 24 inch Cutbow, a 22 inch Cuthroat, a 17 inch Brookie…your get the idea. We do have big fish in a river environment.
  3. Easy river access—no long hikes over rough terrain.
  4. Only 60 minutes from down town Denver via State Hwy. 285—no jeep trails.
  5. A combination of wild fish, spawned fish, and stocked fish make the fishing challenging enough for the expert yet friendly enough for the novice.
  6. There is a good chance that you will hook into and hopefully land the largest trout of your lifetime at Boxwood. You also stand a good chance of catching more trout than you have ever caught in a river fishing experience.
  7. The Clubhouse facility makes fishing even in “poor weather” a nice experience and the shelter and porta pottie at Long Meadow come in handy at times.
  8. Many different species of trout can be caught all in the same day: Rainbows, Cutbows, Cutthroats, Browns, Brookies, Tigers, Steelhead, Palomino.
  9. The river is wader friendly. No moss, no weeds, and no over your head water. But still very challenging rapids, pools and riffles.
  10. Total Privacy- Boxwood section: If your group is 10 or more only your group will be fishing the property. If fewer than 10 anglers we may add anglers. They will have their own guide and share the property independent of your group. At Long Meadow section, you may see a few other anglers not in your group.

This list was compiled from listening to angler comments on why they will be back. We hope that we get to meet and photograph you, with your trophy trout.
