This week the Gunpowder River flow has been fluctuating often. Recently it has been at ideal levels, and flowing at about 85 cfs, 57.9 F and clear. Terrestrials are still going to the most effective way to fish a dry fly. Targeting structure like trees and other formations along the bank will give you the best opportunity to catch a fish, but some opportunistic fish may rise in the faster runs.
Fishing a nymph rig can be very effective as well. You will find fish holding deep in the bigger pools, these fish are best targeted with nymphs. It is best to go small, imitating midges has worked best. We often pair the midge with a larger, heavier fly. The flow has been fluctuating often but recently has been at ideal levels, about 85 cfs.
