The river is nice and low and the water temp is 56 F. Plenty warm enough for excellent dry fly fishing on cloudy days. Bring a rainjacket and experience some great fishing without the crowds. Jeff Lewatowski had a client out Saturday morning on the river and reported nearly two dozen fish hooked-and did not see another soul during a very rainy, productive 4 hour trip. Check out some great pictures of Gunpowder River Browns. Great early morning nymphing in riffles between Masemore and Falls Rd have produced some 12-14″ browns. Try soft hackled pheasant tails and pea***** & beads sized #14-16 in fast, shallow water and use enough shot to slow the nymphs down. Cloudy weather bodes well for those fishing small dries like Olives and ICSI midgee sized #18-22. Fish the small stuff behind something you can see such as an elk hair caddis or stimulator sized #12-14
Note:Use enough shot so that the flies are actually getting hung up on the bottom about every half dozen casts.
