Gunpowder River is Low, Clear and Cold

P1060145The Gunpowder River is flowing at 30 Cfs and is 48 degrees F. The river is low, cold and clear and is warming to 52 degrees by 3 o’clock. The lower River was recently stocked with 500 fresh rainbows at Upper and lower Glencoe Rds, Sparks Rd and Phoenix road. The river is beautiful this time of year but the fish don’t come easily. Zebra midges behind a large hopper or beetle are a good bet in the riffles. Streamers in the boulder pools are worth a try-Especially if you’re after a larger wild brown. The leaves are still hanging on even after our two heavy frosts. BWO’s will start up as we get into a little warmer weather. There is no shortage of midges out there but they are more fun to watch than tie on…

The shop will be closed Thursday, Oct 22 for Jazz for Water and will reopen on Friday.
