The Lefty Kreh Fishing Trail in the Hereford area of Gunpowder State Park, Maryland will be dedicated June 11, 2012 to Bernard “Lefty” Kreh. The trail markers are located at the Masemore Rd. parking access along the 7.2 mile Catch and Release section and are a fine tribute to this fly fishing pioneer and legend. Lefty will be present and honored at a ceremony with Governor Martin O’Malley and Natural Resources Secretary John Griffin beginning at 12:30 PM. The Gunpowder River’s Catch and Release host to a wild, stream-bred population of Brown Trout. Consistent Coldwater releases from Prettyboy Reservoir create an cold water habitat that has landed the Big Gunpowder Falls River in Field and Streams Top 5 U.S. Tailwaters and Trout Unlimited’s 100 best Trout Streams List.
