Newest Report from Backwater Angler

Scott G2 Dry Fly Fishing with a Hendrickson and Red Quill Pattern

On opening day for the Orioles, Hendricksons and Olives are the Twins that are creating quite a stir along the Gunpowder River. The Gunpowder River is flowing at a near perfect 94 CFs, is clear and 54 F. Die-hard nymph fisherman are still beyond frustrated with the Didymo that continues to foul their rigs. Long leaders in the 6x to 7x range have been necessary to trick midging fish in the mirror smooth flats between Masemore and Falls Rd. Downstream of the gas line, the lower river was recently stocked with hatchery rainbows and it has been easy enough to fool these bright fish with streamers and heavily weighted nymphs. Thanks to Mike Colegrove for the great shot of Josh Reider’s favorite Scott G2 with a Hendrickson checking out one of Mike Bachkosky’s Catskill Style Red Quill patterns.
