Low Water on the Gunpowder

Fat gunpowder fish

Thanks to Gene for the following stream report and photos:

The river remains at 32 cfs and water temperatures swing from 52 up to the 60 degree mark. The fishing on the Gunpowder has been tough for the most part. Hot weather, low water and heavy use of the river from other form of recreation are creating for naturally difficult conditions. However those willing to go out during rainy, dark conditions, early morning or late evening when the river is quiet, trout are often willing to pounce on a well presented fly whether it be an ant, cricket, beetle or caddis. This fat fish for example was caught after heavy rain cleared people off the river and the fish were snapping up terrestrials with gusto. Tricos are around the corner!
