WILDERNESS ADVENTURE PRESS MAPS: MONTANA BOULDER RIVER Boulder River:The Boulder River is rightfully named, and youll know why if you glance over the river. Boulders and rocks stud the entire river. It is born in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and drops about 7,000 feet heading north to northeast until it meets the Yellowstone. The trout get surprisingly big. Twenty-inchers are not terribly uncommon, and theyll take streamers, nymphs or dries. The Boulder gets a great golden stone hatch, which sets off the attractor-dry-fly season. Once hoppers appear, the fishing can be fast and furious. Runoff is significant on the Boulder, so youll probably want to leave it alone then. Floating is out of the question and wading can be dangerous. It usually subsides in early July. Youll want studded boots when wading here the greased bowling balls are no joke. Didymo has infected the Boulder and aside from suffocating the river, it makes wading treacherous. There is some good access, but most of it is in the national forest, which offers some of the most spectacular views in Montana. Bring your hiking boots, as there are some amazing hikes to complement the fishing.West Boulder RiverThe West Boulder River is almost as well-known and heavily fished as the mainstem. Its similar in character fast and pockety and the fish run almost as big. The most popular section is the meadow stretch, which is about 2.5 miles up the trail from the West Boulder Ranger Station. Its a pretty hike thats not terribly difficult. Here, the river is slow and placid, and good presentations are appreciated. You can throw terrestrial dry flies virtually anytime the trail is clear enough to hike to the meadow. Browns, rainbows and cutthroat up to 20 inches are the quarry.
