Gunpowder Fishing Report, 3/31/2015

It’s great to finally have something to report on the Gunpowder.  I was able to get out this morning, and the river has the feel of a river that is just on the verge of getting good.  The water was exactly 40 degrees at 11AM (measured, not reported via USGS), and there were midges in the roughly 22 size range coming off and flying around the whole time I was there.

It’s close, but not quite in prime shape just yet.  Fishing was fairly slow, and a beadhead olive nymph brought my only fish to hand, not for lack of trying midges and midge emergers.  Once we see temps staying in the mid 40’s, I think we’ll see some active, rising trout.
