Flows are up on the Gunpowder

The Gunpowder is at an ideal 93 cfs and 50 degrees F. The Gunpowder is carrying a little color from stained water in the tributaries entering downstream of Masemore. The didymo is finally flushing out in large masses.

Prettyboy dam is at capacity, so the river level has been bumped up to prevent spillover. This increase in volume has the didymo breaking off and moving downstream. Short term this may make subsurface fishing a nuisance in the catch and release section until this clears up. ¬†However, with the didymo freeing up, sulphurs and caddis are providing excellent dry fly sport. With the dark, dreary weather we’ve been having, try streamer fishing along the logjams or undercut banks.
