Cold Water, Bright Sun and Wild Fish

The Gunpowder river is flowing at 167 Cfs and is 41 F throughout the catch and release section.The river is clear, cold and is moving along at a good clip.
Guide Capt. Jeff Lewatowski just finished up a guide trip with a new client from Alexandria, Virginia.They were fishing soft hackles, caddis pupa and small stonefly nymphs in riffles and flats above Falls Rd.They released a half dozen fish between 8-10″, and one 12″ fish during the trip.The water will be warming this week and leveling off as the last of the snow and ice melts. Soo…get ready to fish stoneflies!
