The Gunpowder river is gin clear, flowing at 34 Cfs and is 52 F. Small caddis and olives have been accounting for a number of fish on Guide trips this week. Gunpowder guides Capt Jeff Lewatowski and Dave Smith reported solid catches on dries with clients this morning. Need flies that work on the Gunpowder? One need not go any further than the muffin tins. Each week we hand pick a dozen patterns that have been working and place them on the front counter for your inspection. In low flows, fly fishing the Gunpowder river is challenging but with the right mindset and plenty of 7x it can be very productive. We might see higher flows this weekend in anticipation of very low flows on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please consider volunteering some time on the water with the Backwater Angler staff, biologists from MD DNR Fisheries, folks from Baltimore City Watershed and Baltimore County DEPRM during MD DNR’S Annual Shocking Survey.
