March Fly Fishing on the Gunpowder River

Gunpowder Brown Trout
The Gunpowder is at 38 cfs, starting the day at 40 degrees F and carrying some color. Since the flows have been bumped down from 65 to 38 cfs the fishing has slowed up markedly. The trout seem to go into a state of shock after flows drop to this level for the first time in a while. With less water however, water temperatures will rise fast with some mild air temps and sunshine, this will bring on some spring hatches before long. Nymphing and streamers is the way to go until then.
