Yesterday the river dropped to 111 Cfs, an ideal level for wading and fly fishing dry flies only 30 minutes from downtown Baltimore, Maryland. Water temps are 61-64 troughout the catch and release section. Tricos before 10:00 AM from Falls Rd through Masemore Rd Access.
Caddis and Hoppers midday are still worth a shot. Zebra midges and small pheasant tails in the #18-22 range are also working in the fast riffles from York Rd through Bunkerhill Rd
Thanks to Jeff Aichroth for the following Stream report:
Hot…Not only the temps.
Fishing Saturday morning @ Falls Rd was a charge.
Fish were sipping fast and furiously early and what a time.
You could see them come up time after time. Didn’t know where to cast next.
Tricos until about 9 and as it tapered tried a gnat pattern and stretched the top bite for a little while longer.
Saw some action tight to the opposite bank as well.
One of the more enjoyable outings recently. A pair of courteous kayakers who passed behind me despite the shallower water around 10:30 and only one other fisherman working his way up from below the bridge.
A quiet summers morning, good flow of cool water on a hot day, exciting fishing action…What more could one ask for ?
See you all next time around.
