Gunpowder River Low and Clear After Heavy Local Rains Douse Maryland

After a signifigant storm, the promise of great trout fishing is alive and well on the Gunpowder river.  Where can one fly fish in the Mid-Atlantic after 5″ of rainfall? The Gunpowder river of course. While most locales received between 5.01 and 5.6 inches of rainfall in the past twenty four hours,  the Gunpowder river is low and clear from Masemore RD upstream through the Falls RD stretch to PrettyBoy Dam and is flowing at 80Cfs. Olives, caddis and small bead head nymphs have been very productive this week. Small streamers, including Lite-Bright Zonkers are also worth a shot.
