Boulder River Professional Review and Guide

"Next to the definition of “Trout Stream” in the dictionary, there is a picture of the Boulder River. Gin clear water tumbles over perfectly rounded rocks, surrounded by stands of lodgepole pine and aspen groves, gracefully dividing the Absaroka and Beartooth Mountains. When fishing the Boulder River, anglers can truly feel as if they have stepped back in time—no subdivisions, no traffic, just healthy trout, dirt roads, remarkable vistas, and solitude.

Types of Fish: Rainbow, Brown, Cutthroat, and Brook Trout, Whitefish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping."
