Fishing Report Updated July 19, 2021

This Boulder River fishing report is valid between July 19 and late August.

The Boulder River is too low to float and very warm below Natural Bridge Falls. We suggest avoiding it.

The upper Boulder and its Forks will be cooler and are walk-wade only options. Fish attractor dry-dropper combos in the rough water areas and look for hatches in the meadows of the West Boulder. These high-elevation hike in meadows will be a good way to beat the heat and crowds. Even so, the better fishing will be before 2:00.
