The forecast calls for Tricos…

The Gunpowder is still at a great level, (109 Cfs) and with warmer days ahead the ants, beetles and hoppers should get hot enough to chance a swim across the river. The “meadow” section from the rock ledge pool at Bunkerhill to the I-83 bridge is a great one to try-just be sure to stay on the left bank if you are working downstream because the right bank eventually falls up and away from the river and leads you on a billy goat death march. We are still hearing some rumblings about Tricos in the morning. York Rd downstream through Bluemount is a good section to try. A griffiths in a #16-18 on a nice long leader-start with a 12 footer, add some 6x and fish backeddies and the heads of pools. Remember that while in PA you’re likely to see a matress sized cluster hovering over the water, but in Maryland, the Trikes are more subdued and a basketball sized cluster is a joy to behold.
