Gunpowder River Fly Fishing Report, Pictures

Fly Fishing on the Gunpowder River has remained good throught the first of the Summer heat waves.  Stream flows are decent in the mid 70's and water temps cool int he low 50's.  The Sulfur mayfly hatch has thinned and is nearing it's end, though hungry trout will still rise anxiously to a well presented dun.  We are seeing the fierst of the Trico mayflies in the morning hours, and hope this hatch will continue to strenghten and take hold.  Tricos have offerd us some exceptional morning  dry fly fishing from July to October in the past several years.  Terrestrial pattern will work well also through the Summer when fished tight to the banks and deadfalls.

Here are some pics form some of our recent trips. Caught alot of good fish as usual on small nymphs fished on a high stick.
