March 25th Beginner’s Fly Fishing School

Early spring is the perfect time to learn how to fly fish. We have 4 spots available on Saturday, March 25th. Our Fly Fishing Schools are 3 hours long and included the use of gear. In the first half of the course we cover basic knots, casting skills, fly types and techniques for the river. Following instruction bank-side, during the second half we’ll practice the techniques on the water. One gets to try the four main techniques while fly fishing including: dry flies, wet flies, nymphs and streamers. Your guide will demonstrate and teach techniques that will help and prepare each individual for a trip on their own.

Please contact us at 410-357-9557 to confirm availability, prepay and book the trip and we will send you an email confirmation for your very own fly fishing school on the Gunpowder River.

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Gunpowder River Fishing Report

This week the Gunpowder River has been clear. It has dropped in flow from 106 Cfs on the 14th to 61.6 Cfs on the 18th.Consequently the River is warming up a bit from 42.44 degrees F on the 14th to 46.5 degrees F on the 18th. Bright and windy days have resulted in tough fishing on the Gunpowder. That said, tiny BWO’s, Little Black and Brown Stoneflies and a March Brown or two have been coming off between gusts. Fishing small, unweighted streamers that can be cast and drifted along the log jams are always a good bet. Nymphing has been challenging as the Didymo algae is still hanging on above Falls Rd. Remember that the Gunpowder River 5-fish-a-day stretch downstream of Corbett Rd.from the Colonial pipeline downstream through Phoenix Rd. is under Closure 1 and will not reopen till March 25.
