Low Flows, Warming Temps and Spinner Falls on the Gunpowder

Chunky Wild Brown Trout

The Gunpowder River is flowing at 30 CFs is 54 F and is clear above Bluemount Rd. Low flows this week have allowed the water to warm up from the 48 F range closer to the mid-50’s. Spinner Falls have been closer to dusk. Small Elk Hair Caddis in the #16-18 range and BWO’s in the #20-22 range have also accounted for a few fish. Seek out shade and consider picking up a pair of hippies the next time you are in the shop to keep your feet warm and the poison ivy at bay.
