July Fishing Report

The fishing was fantastic all through July until July 21 when we had to close due to poor water quality. We noticed the fish, once caught, did not recover from the stress of battle and others just shut down and refused to play. We figured the best solution was to just temporarily shut down until conditions […]


June fishing report

Steve took advantage of off colored, higher water to land this monster Brown. Along with 5280 guide, Ron Pecore, Steve worked a streamer to land many different trout species….not all as large as this one. June was an overall great month for landing lots of fish on San Juan Worms, leech patterns, and large Stone […]


We opened again on May 1 and we have had great fishing on each trip. Run off has started so we get some off colored water. It clears some by the afternoon. It’s better for catching fish but it doesn’t look as good as the gin clear water we will have later this summer and […]


Late April Fishing Report

We did some test fishing on April 27. The results convinced us that the fish are ready for a fight on opening day May 1. 2 anglers fished from 11:30 to 4 pm. They landed 30 Trout fishing primarily pink San Juan Worms and egg patterns. They caught Rainbows, Brown, Brooks, Tigers and a Palomino. […]


April Fishing Report

Not much to report because we have been closed since March 11. No fishing….No pics of trophy fish. Winter just will not end this year. Cold weather and snow coupled with Denver Water shutting off Roberts Tunnel has made for more ice than water. Here we are on April 10, setting up a trail cam […]


Mid March Fishing Report

Between snow storms and cold night time temps we had some unreal fishing trips at Boxwood and Long Meadow. A few examples as follows: While the big Bows are usually the longest trout landed, plenty of other large species are caught as well: 24 inch+ Browns, 20 inch Palominos, 18 inch Tigers, 16 inch Brookies, […]


Late February Fishing Report

Our 3rd trip of 2019 was quite phenomenal. 6 anglers landed close to 200 beautiful Trout. All 6 species were landed including several 29-30 inch monsters. Tina landed this one at Long Meadow helped with the netting by 5280 guide Gene. Tina has not been fly fishing a lot but she says she is now […]


Opening Day Fishing Report

If a picture is worth a 1000 words i don’t have to say much. Opening day was fantastic. 11 anglers landed over 250 fish. Lots of 24 inch++ fish landed including several in the 29-30 inch category. “Some of the big ones got away.” Will every trip be like this one?? ….Book your next […]


Mid-December Fishing Report

Fishing/catching continues to be excellent especially for Big Trout. Nicole fished at Boxwood with guide Peter, @myflyfishingbuddy, Blue Quill Angler, and landed this perfect CutBow. What a gorgeous fish landed on a size 22! Don’t worry about what flies to bring your outfitter/guide will have all the right stuff. There are only a […]


December Fishing Report

We kicked off December with a great start. Alaskan guide, Lance, fished with 5280 Angler and landed this beast on a size #22 Black Zebra Midge. Lance knows big fish when he sees one and did an excellent job bringing this beauty to the net on a #22 Black Zebra Midge. Fishing/catching is still excellent […]
