Boulder River Fishing Report

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Current Conditions:

The Boulder is up but not beyond fishable levels.  When flows stabilize or cooler temps slow run off nymphing and streamer fishing can be good.  It is worm and stonefly season under these conditions. 

The Month Ahead:

The Boulder runs off a bit later than the Yellowstone because of the high elevation snowpack.  Run off will continue until late June but if flows are stable or dropping good fishing can be had.  Trout will be in the softer protected water until things calm down so don’t fish the main current.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:

The Boulder will become a good option after runoff in the summer months.  The colder water also makes it a nice option later in the summer when other fisheries are getting warm.
