Closed until March

Anglers, I am sorry to report that Boxwood Gulch and Long Meadow will remain closed until the  Spring of 2018. The reason is low water and soon too much ice. Denver Water has decided that they will not need the water from this drainage until next Spring so they are not going to divert water […]

Winter just will not quit. We have a few days of warm weather and then winter strikes again with snow, ice and night time temps as low as 7 degrees F. On some mornings the river is 90% covered in 2 inches of ice. The above pic is from 04-01-16 so you can see what I mean. Who […]
