Boulder River Report 06/04/18

As with the Stillwater, flows on the Boulder have been fluctuating. It’s going to continue in reaction to rain and temperature patterns. The forks may kick in off color water, so flows will be clearer, but swift and high, up above Natural Bridge. Nymphing along the edges is probably the best bet with a rubber leg nymph pattern like a girdle bug or Pat’s rubber legs in black, brown or coffee color along with a beadhead trailer fly like a prince nymph, hare’s ear, batman or pheasant tail. Also try basic buggers in black and olive or the Grinch for streamers. We still have a ways to go in runoff, so expect continued high flows and fluctuations.
