Gunpowder River Stream Report for February 25

The Gunpowder River is clear, flowing at 106 CFs and is 41 degrees F. Keep in mind that as the ice lets go the trails are slippery and still full of mud. It’s a bit safer to bring along a staff or where studs. if you don’t you might end up on your backside looking at this view!
Reports this morning of fish on dries earlier in the week point to the fish looking up. Stop in on Friday, Saturday or Monday and see our March Brown parachute style Klinkhammer!. Small streamers twitched behind a 5ft polyleader should also do the trick.

Gunpowder River Fishing Report 2/18/2022

The Gunpowder River is currently flowing at 138 cfs and the temperature is 41 degrees Fahrenheit. With the higher and warmer water I have been fishing a lot of streamers and euro nymphing smaller jigged leaches to try and entice fish that are  looking for a larger meal. Streamer patterns such as the Baby Gonga, Madison Sculpin, and wooly buggers have been working well. Leech patterns such as the sculp snack and jigged leech are working best with small twitches during the drift. Nymphing has also been very effective. Patterns such as the perdigon, mop fly, and hares ear jig are working very well for fish that are looking for smaller nymphs rather than a large streamer. We have Filson socks in stock that are a terrific solution to having cold feet in the winter months. They work great!
