Gunpowder Fishing Report, 5/10/2015

This past week was probably the best week we have seen this year flyfishing the Gunpowder.  Water temperatures peaking in the low 60’s have fish looking up, and they are seeing hatches of sulphurs (the size 16, pale yellow variety) and small tan caddis.  I’ve had more success with sulphur emergers, but other reputable fishermen (if there is such a thing) have reported success with the duns.

I like fishing caddis imitations, and the Gunpowder’s browns have been responding well to caddis patterns fished in likely holding spots near riffles.

On a side note, I broke out the tenkara outfit for the second time this week, and had an absolute blast along with catching some pretty nice browns.  Catching my first trout on a tenkara rod felt a lot like my first fish on a dry fly.  That’s saying something.
