Streamer fishing the Gunpowder…

The gauge is still down and the river is moving along between 120 and 150 Cfs-A great level for fishing. Water temps are in the mid 50’s.Larger fish in the 14-18″ range have been taking streamers with abandon along cut banks. Olives and caddis in the #16-18 range have been providing lots of dry fy action in riffles between Bunkerhill and Masemore Rd.

Thanks to Jed for the following report…

Message: Theaux and Rocky: Fished Tuesday the 12th below Evna Road both up and down stream. Water was very low, so low at Masemore I decided to go upstream! Fished from 8 :00 a.m. till noon. Then 1:30-5:30. Saw blue winged olives in the morning along with caddis and cream and black midges. The caddis were around 16’s with a lime green body and tan wing. In the afternoon there were some sulphurs out. I caught few fish but decided to fish nothing but dries, except for a small midge emerger as a dropper for a short while. An antron caddis without hackle brought one nice 12 incher. Another fell to a henryville special; Toward late afternoon I switched to an adams midge, had a few rises, then caught one on the midge. Wonderful day; Hope the water levels rise a bit; Jed.
