Thanksgiving Fly Fishing on the Gunpowder River

A belted Kingfisher showed me a few trout yesterday morning and trilled away without spooking them. With the river at 31 CFs, and the water cooling down to around 50 F, expect to find fish in riffles and edges along flats between York Rd, Bunkerhill, Masemore and above Falls Rd toward the Dam taking small nymphs in the #18-20 range. Watch out for those leaves, they’re fun on a 3wt , but not as much fun as a wild fish.Tiny Olives in the #20-22 range have been spotted most mornings and a nice way to cover water is with a larger #14-16 caddis in front of a BWO parachute dropper in a #20-22 tied with 6x. Happy birthday to Dave Gerhardt, who will be fly fishing Masemore Rd access tomorrow on his 93rd birthday.
