The cicadas have every fish in the creek looking up.  I was targeting carp but I don't have the skillset that Icyguides has.  I found a pod of feeding carp and I was in a good position to make a cast but the bluegills and fallfish wouldn't give the carp a chance to get to the cicada fly.  Some decent bluegills were a lot of fun on a 5 wt.

I was busy all weekend. Had an hour on Saturday and I took it. This pretty little brownie took a sulfur off of the surface. Made my weekend.

A cool picture of a stonefly that came off of the Gunpowder. Something to look at on a rainy day.

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. 10 months ago

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. 1 year 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.
