Low Cold Water and Caddis and Sulphurs in the Gunpowder River

The gate change occurred today . The Gunpowder river water is now being pulled from the 55 ft Gate. Base flow out of the dam is 48.6 F so by the time this water reaches Falls Rd in the uppermost catch and release area of the Gunpowder river the water temperature is 51 F by midday. The river temperature at York Rd. this afternoon was 54 F. Flow is now 32-34 Cfs.
Gunpowder River, Falls Rd access at 24 Cfs
-Think shin deep to knee deep throughout the upper river. Caddis and Sulphurs are still coming off and flying ants, Japanese beetles and hoppers are shrieking as they hit the cold water. More water, downstream of the confluence of Little Falls, and some rather large fish have been reported in the stretch from Bluemount through Upper Glencoe Rd.
