Big Gunpowder Falls River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing will be the best, but if you see the adult bugs, throw some larger mayfly patterns. Wet fly and emerger patterns will also work very well.

Seven-day forecast 

We are in the summertime pattern of hot and a chance of thunderstorms, frequently. With lower flows, the water will get a bit warmer, which is good. Caddis and terrestrials are your better bets on the surface. Nymphing and soft hackles will always work. Pay attention to what you see;observe! Be aware of the bugs moving around the water, look for deeper holes, see how the fish feed and use better presentation!
