Dog Days of Summer and Cold Water on the Gunpowder


Fishing this week has been tough as the flows dropped down to 32 CFS at Falls Road.  Even with these low summer flows many have been able to find fish in stretches below Masemore Road where there are a few tributaries adding needed water to the river. Fishing a small ant or beetle along the banks is a great way to trick the weary Gunpowder fish into eating a dry.  Also, fishing a caddis in the deeper riffles could prove to be productive. Stop in the shop to pick up some long leaders ending in 6X or 7X. The fish above fell for a beetle fished below some overhanging branches and the fish below ate a nymph dropped off of a small beetle.
