Great, Stable Flows on the Gunpowder River for Father’s Day Weekend

Gunpowder In Summer
The Gauge is acting up but rest assured, the river is still flowing. This afternoon through the weekend expect to see flows in the 150 to 160 Cfs range. The Gunpowder river is clear and 50.5 F at Falls rd. Reports of BWO’s, and small caddis have been reported throughout the catch and release section. Sulphurs are still about but are sporadic and now in the #18-20 range. MD DNR fisheries biologists just released 5, 000 fingerling rainbows just upstream of Falls Road last week. If you’re tired of tying on tiny dries , try a grey ghost or black nosed dace in the boulder pools. Further down river, terrestrials like ants and hoppers have been tricking a few fish.

Thanks to James for the following stream report:

Hi Theaux,

Thank you for giving me the quick run down on what I would need to catch my first Gunpowder Brown. The 6x and what I believe was one of the many Sulphur patterns from the muffins tins was it all it took.
