Wild Browns Tricked in Low Water

Wild Maryland Brown Trout
The gunpowder river is flowing at 31 Cfs, is 54F and is gin clear. Tiny olives are still making their presence known. The river is quite low so if you’re wading waist deep you’re surely stepping on fish. Small nymphs are making the difference for a lot of folks out there. Using an Adams as a searching pattern is a safe bet. Thanks to Mick Magill for the photo and stream report.

I worked the area you suggested. This 15-incher took the # 22 zebra midge you also suggested – scraping the bottom.

Thanks for the advice!

P.S. a kind stranger fishing nearby was happy to lend me his net so I could land him/her safely
