Flows are dropping to safer levels for wading all along the Gunpowder and surrounding rivers in the region. Streamers will draw attention as well as small copper johns and midge patterns. BWO’s will be active on overcast days so carry a good assortment of patterns to fish every life stage.
Avoid the trout Redd’s, like the one pictured above, and limit fishing over these areas to help sustain a healthy wild trout population for the Gunpowder.
