Early Spring Fishing Report for the Gunpowder: 3/1/16

Categories:

The Gunpowder is slowly warming up and just about all the snow is melted off the banks.  The high water has come down to a fish-able 175 cfs in Catch and Release stretch, and 375 cfs down around Glencoe.  Water temps have been starting in high 30’s in the morning and cresting near 43-44 degrees F. Midge pupae and larvae have been catching people fish, but definitely be patient and fish methodically and slow.  With the water as cold as it has been, the fish are not moving very fast at all. With the warmer temps, you may see stonefliesRead More

The Weather is Still Good Enough to Go Fishing.

Categories:

Just because it is getting colder doesn’t mean the trout won’t eat!  Great Feathers Guide Service is still working with several trips coming up this week.  There is still time to fish before the deep freeze of winter! Don’t forget that a Half or Full day Guided Trip is also a perfect gift for the Holidays.  We have gift certificates available for Guided Trips. Book soon for the best dates for the coming year!

Gunpowder Report and New Simms Stock: 10/3/15

Categories:

As you could imagine the Gunpowder River is a little higher than normal, flowing at 217 in the catch and release area with a temp of 55 degrees. It would appear we are getting very close to streamer season.  The pre-spawn is very close, if not happening now. With the hurricane moving away now, but having plenty of water in the rivers now, expect the fishing to be pretty good. On another note; Great Feathers just got in some Simms coats and fleeces for the chilly weather that’s coming! Rouge Fleece Hoodie in both black and camo Fall Run PrimoloftRead More

Gunpowder Fall Fishing

Tenkara and Tricos On The Gunpowder: Advance Your Fly Fishing By Taking a Step Back

Categories:

Long awaited by some, despised by many, the Tricos represent the pinnacle of technical dry fly fishing. There is not much in the fishing world that rivals watching large brown trout, sitting side by side, mere inches below the surface film, gingerly nosing, yet gorging themselves as if drunk on the tiny, dead insects; all while plainly ignoring your “perfect” imitation. The Tricorythodes emergence on the Gunpowder River is without a doubt, the finest match the hatch, dry-fly fishing opportunity available in Maryland. The devotees of the event wait eagerly for the mayflies all summer long.  While other rivers boast heavyRead More
