The Gunpowder river is flowing at 75 Cfs and is a cool 54 F. The fly fishing along the Gunpowder has been much better most mornings, as the fish are keying in on small nymphs, (#18-20) in the upper river before 11:00 AM. Caddis and Sulphurs have also been producing by midday but the hatches have slowed down a bit. Spinner Falls have been spotty, but still worth a late look. Streamers have also been getting a lot of attention, especially in the stretch downstream of York Rd. A good report this morning from Jeff pointed to lots of takes on small caddis and craneflies. The slow water caddis has also been a very effective pattern just downstream of the Masemore stretch. Lime Sallies are coming off down towards Monkton Station. Fireflies are present through most of the meadow stretches, but a fur ant will do the trick, especially along the high banks.
Sneak into the shop this weekend and celebrate Father’s Day with us and check out our latest shipment of rods from R.L. Winston, Scott, Sage, and St. Croix.
