Gunpowder River Brimming with Tricos, Olives and Caddis

The Gunpowder river is flowing at 86 Cfs and is 61F to 63 F throughout the catch and release section. Tricos sized #22 and Blue Winged Olives sized #18-20 have been accounting for a lot of steady rising fish before 10:00 AM between Masemore RD access and Bunkerhill RD. Caddis sized #16-20 have been working great above Falls Rd access. Hoppers and small streamers in the late afternoon should round out your offerings. Quite a few rainbows have been reported in the gorge area this week.

The recent rains did not affect water clarity or levels today but the clouds should help to make the fishing more productive.Remember that we’re on a tailwater, so even if we get a shot of rain later in the week that would otherwise muddy the freestones in the area, water levels don’t typically move on the Gunpowder as quickly. So by all means, go fly fishing on the Gunpowder river this week and say hello to the herons as you move upstream.
