The water is still quite low, even by Gunpowder standards so be sure to bring along some long leaders in the 12 ft range ending in 6 to 7x.If you’d like to start early, try small Elk Hair caddis with a partridge and yellow or green soft hackle dropper. Backwater Angler Guide Dave Smith has been tying up some local patterns this week so be sure to stop in this weekend and give’em a try.
