Mid-Summer on the Gunpowder River

IMG_2801

With the Gunpowder River flowing at 60 CFS and water temperatures around 52°F.  Fishing caddis or a sulphur dun in the middle of the day through the evening is still a productive method.  Many have come into the shop having had success fishing small ant and beetle patterns.  Dropping small nymphs off of the terrestrials is a great method to fool the wild Gunpowder browns as well.  Thanks to Bill for the stream report:

We fished yesterday and were able to catch a sulphur hatch on the Little Gunpowder River. The fish went crazy, they were rising so much that you never knew where the next one would rise.  After the hatch, the fishing became slow until in the evening we landed a couple brown trout on an Elk Haired Caddis.  Thanks for your help with the fly selection, they worked!
