December Fishing Report on the Gunpowder

The river is at 182 cfs and 44 degrees F.

Water levels have gradually fallen to a better level for fly fishing. Streamers are working well, with the recent high water the trout are spread out. There are plenty of tiny white midges hatching, especially in the deeper boulder pools, on warmer afternoons you can find risers in the softer water sipping emergers. If wading watch out for redds as there are lots of them throughout the catch and release section and please don’t fish for the trout on them.

Anyone fishing Masemore lately lost a rod tip for a Winston? We have it safely behind the counter.
