Fisherman Holding Fish Caught While Fly Fishing

Do I need a fishing license?
Yes. Find out more on our Policies – Pricing page or buy a license online.
Do I need a guide-I am an expert angler?
Yes –Your guide/outfitter will be providing everything you need for your trip to Boxwood. See our list of authorized outfitters and guides.
What happens if I have to cancel my trip?
You can cancel for any reason. If we can rebook your date, you will not be charged for the day. (Check with your outfitter)
What about bad weather or poor river conditions?
If the schools are closed in our area or Metro Denver, due to weather, then we will not expect you to be here.
If for some reason, the river is real muddy when you get here i.e. chocolate water with visibility less than 12 inches and you do not want to fish, you will get a refund or full credit. Same with ice over.
If something happens after you start fishing then we just have to consider that just “bad luck.”
