Election Day Fly Fishing

Election Day Fly Fishing
The Gunpowder River is low, flowing at 40 Cfs and is 55 F. Thanks to Stephen Knott for sending in this shot of a beautiful Brown tricked on election day. Tricos, #18 Blue Winged Olive soft hackles and tiny Caddis in the #20 range are still part of the mix. Fly Fishing in low water can be challenging-especially when approaching spooky fish in the flats. With leaves on the trails and frost on the way now is the time to put studs in your wading shoes. Focus on riffles, runs and plan on approaching fish from the banks and covering the log jams and pools with unweighted streamers. Be sure to bring along a camera to capture the last of the fall colors before the polar vortex arrives.
