Noah and guide, Barney Cohen, from the Blue Quill, are holding the elusive Palomino Rainbow of Boxwood Gulch. They landed it in the Deer Camp area after a fierce battle.
The early days of June have produced many, many, huge fish. Huge for this river is 7-8 lbs. I have seen more 4-5 lb fish landed than ever before.
Save your time and gas $$ and visit Boxwood.
The water has been very clear to slightly off colored. We had a few days of run-off in late May and right now the flow is about 150cfs and very clear.
Your guide will have the perfect bugs but many of the old standards have worked great...Elk Hair Caddis, Pheasant Tails, Prince, RS2, BWO Emergers, Adams, San Juan Worms, egg patterns, and various streamers and buggers.
We are located just a scenic 60 minute drive from Denver on Hwy. 285. You will be fishing for huge trout, on a private ranch, with some of the best guides in Colorado.
Get ready to have a great experience.
See you soon,
