Boulder River 6-6-2017

Like the other rivers in the area, the Boulder is running off, making both fishing and catching a challenge.  The soft corners and edges that are holding fish are either tough to find or tough to get to…but if you find a good spot, fish a Kaufman’s Stonefly, Pat’s Rubberlegs or a Double Bead Golden Stone.  With the water running high and off colored, a San Juan worm tied to the Stonefly has been very effective.  Look for dropping flows and cool days to plan your June fishing on the Boulder, as decreasing flow rates are generally associated with increased water clarity, better fishing and easier wading.  Contact the flyshop for more information about daily conditions and consider one of our guided wade trips into the Gallatin National Forest.  As the exclusive fishing outfitter permitted to guide the Main Boulder River within the National Forest, we would love to show you the beauty and the fish of the upper Boulder.
