The Gunpowder River has come up from 32 CFS and is now flowing at 51 Cfs and is 54 degrees F. With football in full swing folks in the know are getting out early to enjoy some great and challenging dry fly fishing.
Please Note: The shop will open at 8AM tomorrow for those wanting to get an early start!
Thanks to Gene for the stream report and great photos.
The relentless heat of summer is behind us and it’s a beautiful time to be out on the river. I have been fishing nymphs a lot, catching plenty of brown and rainbow trout in the 8-12 inch range, with a few 14-15 inch fish. Larger fish are beginning to show themselves so it’s worth fishing streamers too. Yesterday evening I had the stream to myself upstream from falls road and found the fish eager to whack a black wooly bugger and grey ghost. If you’re looking for hatches, trico’s are still hatching in the morning, downstream of Masemore to big falls, between 9-11 in the morning. Evening midge hatches upstream from Falls road in the evening are also common.
