Spring has finally sprung.  The weather is nice, the frogs are singing and little green things are popping up in the woods.

The trout are becoming happier as well.  With longer, warmers days come warmer river temperatures, which are sorely needed by anglers as well as trout.

we have been seeing LOTS of brown and black stoneflies bumbling around the river banks, mostly 18’s for the blacks and 12’s for the browns.  Though not the easiest for trout to eat, they do make up a large proportion of the trout early spring diet.

the Gunpowder is flowing 83 cfs at the Parkton gauge and 181 cfs at Glencoe gauge.

Happy fishing!
