Bwo’s, Tricos and Caddis along the Gunpowder River

The river is flowing at 50 Cfs is clear and 51 F. We’ve had numerous reports of Olives along the river. Most of these are in the #18-20 range and we have plenty of snowshoe duns and emergers From Mike Bachkosky in the muffin tins on the front counter. The fish are looking up and the weather has been superb. While we’re not seeing blanket hatches, tricos are massing most mornings throughout the catch and release section. When in doubt use a #16 bead head pheasant tail in the riffles between Falls Rd and Bunkerhill. Summer is fleeting and we’ve had exceptional dry fly fishing. You could be doing far worse than trying your luck on the Gunpowder this weekend.
