Trico Hours at Backwater Angler…We’re open at 8:00 AM Saturdays and Sundays through August

The Gunpowder river is flowing at 74 CFS, is 54 F and clear.
August has historically provided excellent dry fly fishing opportunities to early risers. Tricos are massing at Masemore. Tricos, midges, small caddis and ants are likely candidates before noon. Hoppers, Crickets, Beetles and streamers should round out most afternoons along the river.

If you’re fishing from the armchair this weekend, we’ve provided a glimpse of what you’re missing in the following historical posts:

Backwater Angler will be open from 8:00 AM till 4:00 PM every Saturday and Sunday through the month of August! We’ll have fresh baked goods and coffee from the Filling Station on Saturdays and Sundays so stop in early and enjoy breakfast on us!
