Clear Water in the Gunpowder after Heavy Rain

The Gunpowder River is clear flowing at 37 CFs and is 48 degrees F. Thanks to Gene for the stream report!

Heavy rain yesterday saw Little Falls rise to 2500 cfs. Downstream from where it joins the main stem of the Gunpowder saw levels of almost 3000 cfs – 2 feet above the flood level.

Whilst the upper Gunpowder was stained yesterday and high with surface runoff from roads, levels quickly fell back to normal overnight and its back to 38cfs and clear by today. For the weekend nice temperatures and sunshine should bring out more Sulphurs and Hendricksons in the catch and release sections of the river. Look to fish the faster water with pheasent tail nymphs and emergers size 12-14 and you’ll encounter feeding trout.
