If you were fishing you’d be smiling…..

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.
