Boxwood Gulch and Long Meadow - Private South Platte River Fly Fishing
- Breakfast and Lunch
Check with your Guide/Outfitter about meeting times, meeting places, breakfast and lunch or
any other special requirements that you may have. If you book the Boxwood section lunch will be provided at the Clubhouse. Some Guides provide breakfast some do not. Talk to your guide.
All of our authorized guides and outfitters will be able to accommodate your requests.
4 and 5 weight, medium fast rods are suggested, backed with disc drag
reels. Floating line and 4x or 5x leaders and tippets. Waist high waders
allow anglers to access 90% of the water, with chest high needed only
for the brave at heart. Bring your polarized sunglasses because you will be sight fishing for "monster trout" in crystal clear water. Rain gear is always a good idea.
Dry fly action starts in late March and lasts through early October.
Boxwood Gulch guides suggest that clients use their confidence patterns.
Suggested dry patterns are mostly attractors such as Royal Wulffs, Stimulators,
Trude Wing Coachmen, Hoppers and Caddis in sizes from #14 to #8s. Special Boxwood Patterns such as Olive Death Gold Prince nymphs, Turks Tarantula,
Bite Me, and many others are available for purchase in seasonal selections from our Authorized Outfitters.
- Winter Fishing
Winter months can offer some of the best nymph fishing in the Rocky Mountain range,
because of the mild conditions, we fish in what is referred to as the "Bailey Banana Belt."
Stone flies, Wooly Buggers, and other nymph patterns can yield an angler a 20 fish day. A quick warm up in the clubhouse will let you get right back in the river for more action.
- Streamer Fishing
Streamer fishing is a year round affair at Boxwood Gulch. Because of the competition
between approximately 2000 fish on less than 1 mile of river, Streamer patterns such as Spruce streamers
and sculpins can trigger savage strikes that will make even the most experienced anglers tighten
- The combination of natural spawned trout and fish raised in our own ponds provides
anglers an unforgettable outing of both shrewd selective trout and friendly receptive fish,
that will test his or her tippet to the max.
