Gunpowder River Weekend Release at 120 Cfs

 Great Levels for Terrestrial Fishing
The Gunpowder is up from 30 Cfs to 120 Cfs for the duration of the weekend. The continued work by Baltimore City on Prettyboy Dam midweek and recent heavy rains has led to an off load of water to keep the Gunpowder’s flow solely bottom release. The resulting rise in levels will spread many fish out, and make them much more aggressive. Tricos, tandem nymph rigs, streamers and big terrestrials are all good options on the river in these flows. The Trico hatch in the morning has provided great surface action, even in the lower flows, but at higher levels the trout are much easier to fool. Large terrestrials and large streamers will produce bigger trout, although nymphing may produce more trout.  Water levels may drop by Monday morning, so be sure to stop by the shop and pick up some good high water patterns before the weekends over.
