Anglers are landing lots of great looking fish at both Boxwood and Long Meadow. These photos are from fish landed at Long Meadow. As I write this, on April 3, the temp is 55 degrees and the snow is melting rapidly. Some run off has started to color up the water from gin clear to […]
Fishing/catching has remained excellent, before, during and after our spring snowstorms. We are expecting an especially big snow this weekend so we closed for a few days until the storm passes. Jason landed this really nice 22 inch Tiger on March 9th. He was guided by Chris Goodwin with 5280 Angler. Chris […]
Our winter fishing trips have been very productive. Fish up to 26 inches long — maybe larger on some that anglers landed which were not measured. Water temps averaged 38-41 degrees which kept the fish very active chasing streamers. Some anglers reported landing 20 fish before lunch, including Browns, Bows, Brooks and Palominos. When you […]
What a great start for 2021 fishing. Our group of 6 anglers guided by Tom, Nick and Ron from 5280 Angler landed 130 Trout. An exceptional day for sure. Hot flies used were….eggs, worms, Copper Johns, leech patterns, PT’s, Rainbow Warriors. The fish will now get a 30 day rest and be ready to go […]
Anglers have been landing lots of fish in late November including fishing through our 12 inch snow storm. On November 28th a group of 5 landed 87 fish — the largest a 26 inch Bow. A good day for sure! The guides that work here a lot during the winter will have the right bugs. […]
Nice warm weather for November and the fishing/catching was hot. Your guide will have the flies you need but bring your own creations.
Fishing/catching has remained strong since our reopening on October 15th.
We have had 3 trips since re-opening on October 14th. The results have been epic both in terms of the number of fish landed and the overall quality…. and in some cases the phenomenal size. We have 300+ cfs of gin clear water from Dillon Reservoir via Roberts Tunnel. You can see the fish in […]
Lots of anglers are worried about how this low water is affecting our fish.So far so good. The fish are doing excellent. My daughter Dana and her son Austin fished for a few hours on 9-23-20. Using small nymphs and small black streamers they landed quite a few quality fish up to 28 inches…maybe some […]

Flows have been consistent with 380 cfs through Roberts Tunnel, from Lake Dillon, and 90-100 of natural flow. Our water is gin clear which provides lots of sight […]
