Gunpowder River, Monkton, MD

The “Gunpowder” is a tailwater fishery beginning at Pretty Boy Dam. The flow and water temp (50 degrees today) was perfect.

I fished 2 sections – the access point at Masemore road (am) and Falls Road (pm). The Masemore section is relatively flat. Up river at Falls Road there is more plunge pools around boulders.

The am was successful dredging the wild brownies up on a #18 caddis.

Sulphurs hatched in the afternoon at Falls Road and I dis well on a #18 Sulphur. I was also surprised with a nice rainbow which is rare on the Gunpowder.
