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.

We do feel confident that no matter what Denver Water does Mother Nature will provide enough snow […]

Gin clear water and an experienced guide with some good luck produced quite a few trophy fish at both Boxwood and Long Meadow. Hot flies […]

As veteran anglers to Boxwood […]
