Another Release On The Gunpowder River

Gunpowder In Summer
The shop received an update that a release was made this morning at Prettyboy Dam. The latest release is an attempt to draw down reservoir levels to eliminate spillover. When reservoir levels drop below the lip of the dam, the release will be cut back to a lower flow. Flows are expected to level out at 100 CFs through the weekend into early next week. Water temps are fluctuating from the low to mid fifties through the day. Caddis and sulphurs are still hatching midday, and bringing fish to surface. Nymphs are working well, and anglers should consider fishing midge or nymph patterns down to a size 20-22. Streamers are a good bet around logjams in the mid to lower sections of river. The Gunpowder is at a great flow, cold and clear. Be sure to take advantage of these ideal conditions while they last!
