Gunpowder River Fishing Report

The Gunpowder is currently flowing at 63 cfs and the water temp is 54 spiking up to 57 in the middle of the day. The river is fishing well despite the cooler water temps. Caddis have been the main food source for these fish the past few weeks, but don’t discount Mayflies. the fish are still looking for sulfurs. Ants and Beetles have been producing as well. If you are fishing in the middle of the day we suggest using a dry dropper. Fishing patterns such as a stimulator, Elk Hair Caddis, Parachute Ant, or small Chubby Chernobyl. dropping a small Pheasant Tail, Hares Ear, or Zebra Midge off the back of your dry has been the most productive set up. make sure to use flotant on those dry flies. The fish have been more aggressive towards the high floating dries. Make sure to stop in the shop for new patterns.
