Boulder mtn closes on November 1 st

Tried to access the fishcreek and beaver dam area... They are doing road construction on the main gravel road, it was a mess, 
Also there was 5 to 6 inches of snow on the trail up to the lake making access by vehicle difficult, we made it as far as the last steep hill before it was just to slick.
The lakes close  on the 1st of November... This is the final two days, for the season on the boulders.

Fish lake.
   Reports have been coming in for good fishing for rainbow trout and Splake in the 10 to 14 inch range by trolling on the east side of the lake, we have been fishing small buggers trailed with baetis nymphs in the twin creeks area and doing well.

Millmeadow / Forsyth
 Millmeadow is currently being drained for adjustments to the release gate,
access has been difficult with the low water.  Forsyth water levels are really good this fall fish were restocked and have been growing well.

Upper Fremont River.
flows are down and the fishing has been good for small browns, using glow bugs and October caddis nymphs and dries, there has been a few hatches in the afternoon of midges and tricos.

Bicknell bottoms.
Fishing has been fair some days and slow on others, there have been a good number of duck hunters in the bottoms so be careful.

Lower Bowns:
fishing has been good using silver and white buggers, fish have been in the 8 to 12 inch range.
the lake is very low making access difficult.

Boulder Mtn.
Fishing remains good in the Beaver dam and Fishcreek area, the splake and brook trout are stacked up in the inlets, getting the right presentation and flies can be tricky, patience will pay off, we suggest cream and light olive scuds, we also use purple prince nymphs, and October Pheasant tail nymphs,
calibaetis  nymphs crawled slow on the bottom have also been working well for us. there has been ice on some of the smaller lakes and on the edges of the bigger lakes in the morning hours, fishing has been best in the afternoons.

Thousand Lakes Mtn.
Fishing remains good in the Solomon basin area as well as round lake, there has been ice on grassy and deep creek in the mornings making fishing there difficult. small olive buggers and copper buggers have been fishing the best, also Zug bugs and lightning body prince nymph.
