  15. 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.
