Mid-May Gunpowder River Report

Thanks to Stefan Babij for the following report on the Gunpowder:

Despite recent heavy rain the Gunpowder’s flow and temperature has stayed consistent at around 39cfs and 50 F. Lots of midge activity, along with Caddis and Sulphurs have been coming off during the sunnier days throughout the upper river. On the rainy days nymphing or fishing a small streamer will be most effective. However, nymphing from Falls road upstream remains difficult due to the die-off of didymo.

As the mountain laurels beginning to flower and the trees in full leave, the sulphurs are starting show in larger numbers. The fish below was caught on a hares ear nymph by Guide Bryan Donoway. Now through June the evening dry fly fishing is at it’s best, call the shop at 410 357 9557 to schedule an evenings fishing and instruction with one of our Guides.
