The river is flowing at 65 Cfs, is 40 F and clear. Gunpowder river fish have been taking streamers and small stonefly nymphs and zebra midges. The trails are icy, so now is a good time to drop in some new spikes in your wading shoes. Bringing a wading staff along isn’t a bad idea either. Alex McCrickard sent us the following photos after a successful “snow day” along the Gunpowder.
Thanks to Ryan for the following report,
Just wanted to thank you for your help on Friday. The water was pretty cold but it was great to get out for the first time this year. I managed to take 3 browns and a bow, ranging from 7-11 inches. The zebra midge pattern you recommended accounted for three of the four fish. Thanks again for all your help.
