Boulder River Report

Current Conditions:
The Boulder is low and the trout are spooky so making longer casts helps to reduce sending trout in the wrong direction.  The good news is that fish are moving into deeper water where they aren’t as nervous.  Standard fair for nymphing like stone fly nymphs and baetis patters is productive.  Swinging and stripping streamers can turn some browns from time to time.  Cloudy weather will bring up rising trout over the baetis hatch like clockwork in the later afternoon.

The Month Ahead:
For the next few weeks the fishing will be a predictable pattern of nymph fishing deeper runs followed by some dry action over the baetis hatch.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Boulder is a cold river and not a premier winter fishery.  It will become a viable option in April after the thaw.
