Spent a little time on Sunday poking around the Gunpowder.  Sometimes I take this river for granted.  You would not think you are in Maryland on some of the stretches.  I wish I could find bigger browns in this river.  I know there are a few but they have PhD's in fly selection.
mike o I went by the lower gunpowder to see if there were any perch . There were no fish or fisherman. Some years the fishing can be really good there and some years really bad. 1 month ago

Put my kayak in yesterday afternoon and fished until dark.  One dink striper on top water and two boils.  Very slow day for me.  Threw my favorite Susky fly to no avail.

I went out on the river yesterday at first light and fished until about 11.  No topwater, no stripers.  I caught a couple little smallies and had a surprise when I jokingly casted a Keitech to a carp that was sitting in the mouth of deer creek in about a foot of gin clear water and it ate it.  One gate was open at 3500 cfs.  The water was still very warm and gin clear.
Frogman Nice! These cooler nights should drop the water temps soon. As low and clear as I’ve seen in a long time. 7 months ago

This is the new regs for stripers. I think. A bit confusing.
Here is how I read the new rules - don't hold me to fine print - it is confusing.

One person is dead following an early morning crash Tuesday morning at Conowingo Dam, Maryland State Police said.

Flyrob Wow mike that's really sad! As many times as I've crossed the Conowingo Dam in the past 30 years I often wondered how strong that south side concrete barrier was and if it could hold back a large vehicle and apparently not... 1 year ago
