August 2017 Fishing Report — Longmeadow

Excellent conditions made for a beautiful day of fishing for our client Nate, guided by Peter Ryan of Blue Quill Angler. In Peter’s words: Hi Dan, This happened at Longmeadow on Wednesday. We taped the bow at 32″. 18″ girth.  Nate had a great stick. He landed every fish he hooked and got into a bunch […]

Boxwood Gulch hosted the “Battle at Boxwood” for the seventh year on July 22, 2017. The event was a huge success thanks to the many volunteers, guides, and sponsors.

June 2017: Unofficial State Record Tiger Trout

Larry was at Boxwood Gulch with the guides from Trout’s when he landed this huge Tiger.We figure it beat the State record by about 3-4 lbs. At 27 inches it was only 1 inch shy of the length record. We have plenty of water and it is quite clear. The fish are mostly on the edges […]

May Fishing Report

Wow…what a fantastic month for fishing streamers. Lots of 10-12 lb fish landed on nearly every trip. We had plenty of great water all month…a mix of Dillon water and natural runoff provided just enough color to bring the Big fish out in the open. Some bugs that worked: Mop Flies, Princes, worms, eggs, Wooly […]

April Fishing Report

Fishing remained as strong as ever in April even though we had some Spring Mountain weather to deal with. The anglers who braved a few cold and  snowy days were rewarded with fantastic fishing. I received lots of really cool pics of trophy sized Trout. I picked this one from James, at Hoodlum Photography, for […]

Record Breaking Tiger Trout Catch

March Fishing Report

Imagine having this brute on the other end of your fly line. Hooked on a #20 nymph. Brian from Blue Quill put his client Frank onto this monster Bow and then the fight was on. Notice the nose on the fish is rubbed raw. The Big Bows at Boxwood dig out their own food from the […]

February Fishing Report

We rolled into February with great water: 100 cfs.  The fish were eating small nymphs and streamers all month. Paul landed this 30 inch Cutbow on a Dalai Lama. His guide Tom from 5280 Angler put him on the fish. Their group of 4 landed about 45 fish that day. Anglers are averaging 10-12 fish […]

January Fishing Report

Our winter fishing has been nothing short of spectacular as evidenced by this huge Boxwood Bow that Nick landed on 1-16-17 on a size 20 Chocolate Thunder. His guide Jeremy Hamilton, along with Geno and Ron, from 5280 Angler, put their group of 6 anglers onto 60 fish. The fish in the photo measured out […]

Late December Fishing Report

Anglers: Fishing/catching is still unreal at Boxwood Gulch. We have perfect, nearly gin clear water at a flow of 95cfs. Very little ice. On Friday 12-30-16 we had 8 anglers land 115 fish using pegged eggs and size 18-20 assorted nymphs.  It took some skill and perfect drifts to hook fish like the one Rob is […]

Early December 2016 Fishing Report

This 25 inch Bow took a #20 Black Rainbow Warrior. Mike was extremely happy with his decision to do a winter fishing trip at Boxwood….You will be too. While we have been having some cold days the fish have been extremely cooperative. Days of 15 to 20 fish per angler have not been uncommon. Many comments […]
