Year End Gunpowder Fishing Report

The Gunpowder is at 245 cfs, clear and 43 degrees F.

Update 11 am 12/28. Gauge at Falls road is at 440 cfs and rising, with more rain forecast through this afternoon. Remember level over 300 cfs are unsafe for wading, keep it to the banks!

The river is in good shape. Gradually the flows have came down to a more optimal level for wading and fishing. Backwater Angler Guide Bryan Donoway & I fished yesterday and found a good amount of fish rising for blue winged olives and midges along the banks, in the back eddies and softer water. Nymphing was especially productive with small pheasent tails, miracle nymphs, hares ear and zebra midges accounting for a plenty of feisty brown trout. With wetter weather around the corner, streamer fishing should be the ticket once again.

It’s that time for renewing licenses, we’ll be here normal hours including New Years Eve, stop by for some friendly advice and some flies that will help get you some fish in the net.

We also have a good amount of Filson Cold Weather Hats, Tin Packer Hats & Insulated TIn Cloth hats that we are selling at 35% off. Pick one up while stocks last!
