Holiday Hours, Streamers and Well Wishes!

The Gunpowder river is clear and flowing at 82 Cfs and is 52 F. Streamers are a good way to connect especially around log jams and bend pools. We have sinking leaders in-stock that really help these patterns roll and tumble. With most of the leaves gone folks have once again found fish by returning to nymphing jigs and zebra midges.

Please limit your wading this time of year, wantonly stepping through redds can jeopardize next year’s bounty of wild stream bred brown trout!

We are truly thankful of your support this season and wish everyone a peaceful and restful holiday!

Early November Gunpowder River Fishing Report

The Gunpowder has been at consistent levels today in spite of the rainfall. The water temperature is holding steady at 55 degrees. Flow at Falls Rd is 45 CFS. We have been seeing lots of BWO’s coming off mid-day through the evening and fish have been eager to rise to them. With cooler weather ahead, streamer fishing with a sink tip- leader will work very well. Patterns like BWO Compara-Duns, tan Elk Hair and X-Caddis, black and olive wooly buggers, and Bank Robber Sculpins are worth a shot. Euro nymphing has also been working well. We have pre-made Euro leaders and Euro flies in-stock. Stop in and get outfitted!
