The Gunpowder is flowing around 100 cfs and holding. Daytime water temps are rising into the mid 50’s making for some exciting fishing opportunities. Caddis and sulphur have been spotted and are getting some attention from the wild browns that inhabit this river. You may even get a rainbow trout here and there.
Early and late day excursions will provide the most action as air temps begin to heat up mid-day.Popular patterns to use are the always reliable elk-hair caddis, caddis pupa emerger patterns, PT nymphs, and comparadun patterns.
Don’t forget that nymphing can still be very productive even when fish are rising. If using a euro nymphing outifit, you have the ability to fish deep pools and also swing that same rig through the tailout to imitate those rising insects swimming for the surface.
If you’re interested in learning how to fish with this setup, give us call and we’ll spend a day on the river showing you how. Lets get out there and spend a great day on the river, practicing social distancing of course !!
