Boxwood/Long Meadow Closing Until May 1

First the bad news… We must close fishing until May 1 (my best guess) Denver Water just shut off our water supply from Dillon Reservoir…they don’t need the water in Denver. Natural flow is quite low because our run-off from snow melt has not started yet. We will reopen for trips as soon as we […]
