10 Reasons to Fish at Boxwood Gulch / Long Meadow
This is a guided, walk and wade, river fishing experience on the North Fork of the South Platte River. You will have approximately one mile of the river at Boxwood and 2 miles at Long Meadow to fish depending on the section/sections that you reserve.
- Big fish and plenty of them---and you will catch some of them.
- Total Privacy- Boxwood section:
If your group is 8 or more only your group will be fishing the property. If fewer
than 8 anglers we may add anglers. They will have their own guide and
share the property independent of your group.
At Long Meadow section, you may see a few other anglers not in your group.
- Easy river access---no long hikes over rough terrain.
- Only 60 minutes from down town Denver via State Hwy. 285---no jeep trails.
- A combination of wild fish, spawned fish, and stocked fish make the fishing challenging enough for the expert yet friendly enough for the novice.
- There is a good chance that you will hook into and hopefully land the largest trout of your lifetime at Boxwood. You also stand a good chance of catching more trout than you have ever caught in a river fishing experience.
- The Clubhouse facility makes fishing even in "poor weather" a nice experience and the shelter and porta pottie at Long Meadow come in handy at times.
- Many different species of trout can be caught all in the same day: Rainbows, Cutbows, Cutthroats, Browns, Brookies, Tigers, Steelhead, Palomino.
- The river is wader friendly. No moss, no weeds, and no over your head water. But still very challenging rapids, pools and riffles.
- The average size fish landed in 2008 was 19inches. The largest, a 28.75 inch Rainbow, a 27 inch Brown, a 24 inch Cutbow, a 22 inch Cuthroat, a 17 inch Brookie...your get the idea. We do have big fish in a river environment.
This list was compiled from listening to angler comments on why they will be back. We hope that we get to meet and photograph you, with your trophy trout.
