Another Weekend Release on The Gunpowder River

Choppy Water Bend
The shop just received word that yet another release on the Gunpowder will provide perfect conditions for fishing through this weekend. Anglers should expect clear, ice cold flows in the low fifties and levels in the 120 Cfs range. Tricos swarms are getting thick and many spinners may fall as late as 11:30 a.m., as described by customers stopping by the shop today. As I write this a few calls have come in confirming the water is already on the rise, by those anglers who braved the low flows for an afternoon’s fishing. In addition to dry fly fishing, nymphing, streamers and dry-dropper rigs are also great in these flows. We just received a shipment of ants and beetles from Rainy’s Flies, and also have a variety of foam and deer hair hoppers, too.
