Father’s Day Sulphurs and Caddis

Gunpowder River Sulphurs and Wild Trout
The Gunpowder River is flowing at 171 Cfs, is 58 degrees F. and clear. Sulphurs are sporadic mid-day along the catch and release section within the Hereford Area of Gunpowder State Park. Caddis and Olives are worth a shot in the morning. Stop in and give the flies in the muffin tins a look. Sulphurs sized #18 and #20 and caddis in the #16-20 range area also a good bet…Longer leaders will help to trick wild fish this time of year so start with a 10 ft 5x leader and plan on adding some 6 or 7x tippet. Thanks to Josh Reider for the stream report and pictures:

Fishing has been very good the past couple of days after the storm. The water level dropping back below 200 Cfs this weekend has allowed the fish to return back to feeding on the surface. Fishing caddis in the shade during the middle of the day will produce a few fish. Many anglers have also reported catching fish nymphing small pheasant tails, hares ears, and zebra midges.
