Fly Fishing The Gunpowder In August

The Gunpowder flowing at 50 Cfs, and well below 50 degrees in the first mile. Tricos and caddis have worked well, but the trout can be very selective during the trico hatch. The shop has a variety of size 22 and 24 trico spinner and dun patterns that are fooling wary browns. Small duns described by many anglers as BWOs, PMDS or “tiny sulphurs” are emerging in the afternoons. I never grabbed one to I.D., but did manage to catch a few browns on a couple variations of BWO’s during this afternoon emergence. In the latest video I filmed the morning hatch cloud of tricos moving upriver, a caddis pattern next to the real thing, and some wild Gunpowder browns.
