The Boulder Pools

The Big Gunpowder Falls river is 43 F, very low at 20 CFs at Falls Rd and clear. Further downstream at Glencoe, the river is flowing at 86 CFs. Little Black flies have beeen coming off above Falls Rd since mid -week. Long leaders ending in 7x along with RS2 patterns and CDC midge emergers in the #20-22 range are a good bet. Further downstream, Prince nymphs in the #14-16 range should work fine. If you’d like to wade and not rock hop, the stretch between Monkton and Glencoe is worth the walk. If you’d like to have any easier time out there stop in and we’ll show you a few non-traditional Gunpowder streamers that should work great through the log jams and draw you a quick map of access points along the Gunpowder river.
