August/September Fishing Report

August and September offered terrific fishing at Boxwood Gulch and Long Meadow Ranch! Anglers enjoyed clear water and average flows around 300 cfs. Sight fishing with various nymphs such as eggs, small soft hackle patterns, green copper johns, hare’s ears, sowbugs, and pheasant tails has been the most effective technique. On some days, anglers have […]

June/July Fishing Report

The fishing at Boxwood this June and July has been outstanding! Anglers have enjoyed hooking/landing double digit numbers and fish well over 20.”   Excellent stream flows have been generally steady between 350-550 CFS, with an average of 400 flowing from the Roberts tunnel. As other rivers around the state have begun voluntary closures due to warm […]

Late May Fishing Report

Fishing/catching has remained in the good to excellent range for all anglers, from 89 year old “doc” to a star at 9 years old including some great lady anglers fishing for the first time. Water clarity has been weak tea colored. Flows have been from 350 cfs to 200 cfs on most days. Anglers are […]

Mid-May Fishing Report

The Wait Is Over

We have great water….100 cfs from Dillon Reservoir and 20 cfs from snow melt.Clarity is very good…you can see the bottom in 3-4 feet of water…not gin clear but perfect for fishing. We will be opening on May 3 with great water and lots of quality fish…see you this season.

Waiting for more water

Snow melt will help but it hasn’t started yet. Denver Water says that “they expect to turn on Roberts Tunnel within the next 2 -3 weeks”. All good, with fingers crossed, we will be open by May 1. Thank you for fishing at Boxwood/Long Meadow…we appreciate your business. Dan Mauritz

Waiting For Spring

We are closed until the ice and snow melt and we get enough water for quality fishing trips. Based on our past 34 years in the business we think will be able to open sometime around late April or early May. While we wait we are opening up more angler access, improving trails, fixing equipment […]

Finally Getting Some Snow!

Well…we are finally getting some snow. Feeling sorry and sad for the folks in the Boulder area who lost their homes and more. They needed this snow a couple of days ago. It’s looking like we will be closed until late April or early May. Until then we will be taking reservations and improving some angler […]

November 2021 Fishing Report

The winter fishing in November was unusual in that we didn’t have cold weather, snow or rain. The fish even acted a little weird, one day they would be quite active and the next day they would be slow to get started. Quite a few fish over 22 inches were landed on each trip. The […]
