October Stream Report

The Gunpowder remains at 28 cfs with water temp’s in the mid 50’s F.

Not much different to report from last month regarding hatches. Keep wading to a minimum to avoid spooking fish in the low water. With the cooler nights upon us the fishing tends to improve mid morning once the bugs (primarily midges) start to catch in the drift.

The state just stocked 500 rainbows and goldens in the lower river (Glencoe, Sparks & Phoenix) so while the catch and release section is low it’d be worth a shot there with either streamers or nymphs. 

Note: We will be open normal hours this coming Columbus Day Monday.
