I can't believe I forgot to mention the Gun.

While the really scenic section up near Prettyboy gets hammered every weekend, the Gun stretches downstream through other C&R sections for miles and miles.

I get stuff at Bass Pro in Arundel as well. Wait for their "spring fling" at the end of February when everything goes on sale.

One other point - Larry Coburn who wrote that book runs the fly shop there. So, you can have a chat with him if he is on duty when you are there.

XJGUY - I was up at Daniels a few weeks after they stocked it this fall, no action. Do you work down from the Dam or up from the I70 crossover?

yeah same here when i go i usually start at I70 and work my way up to the damn. me and a buddy went and the biggest fish we cought was about four inches long and a perch or somthing i think. the water was extremly low, when i was wadeing in the rver spots that were up to my chest were bearly knee height i think that had alot to do with it.

My results exactly. I went back there on the 29th when it was warm to look at the Black Bass C&R area below I70. Looks good, but nothing was moving - not even my buddies the bluegills!

Next season....

I'm from Western Maryland and I flyfish the Savage River a lot! It's the tailwater from the Savage River Dam and it's full of naturally reproducing browns and brookies. It has some nice rainbows from when they do water release from the dam but as far as I know, the DNR does not stock this portion of the river. They have an Orivs Flyshop located right on the river too! Nice people and very helpful. They also have a website you can check out. SavageRiverOutfitters.com. They will tell you stream levels and what is hatching and what to use. It is a beautiful river to fish but very rugged and slippery!

I highly recommend that book to anyone looking to fly fish in Maryland. It is a great starting point and once you become familar with an area it is easy to stumble upon those little known streams that no one fishes. That is where the real fun is.

Hey guy's,
I'm from Baltimore, and work part-time at the local Gunpowder Falls fly-shop, Backwater Angler. It's good to know that some fellow Gunpowder fisherman are talking on this forum!
To answer the question about the log-jams being cut out. Yes, unfortunately the stretch from Falls Rd. access to Bluemount Rd. has be de-logged. Theaux LeGardeur, the owner of the shop even got pictures of the people cutting out the logs with chain-saws. Theaux managed to call the park service, but since they are buddies with the canoe club, the club managed to get off with only a "warning."
Another aspect of interest in the past couple of months has been Bluemount Quarry. They have been seen violating their permit to crush rebar, and have installed a drain into the Gunpowder. If anyone has any further info on this matter, contact Theaux at Backwater Angler!
I encourage everyone to check out the shop, or visit our website at:
BACKWATER ANGLER

Tight Lines!

How's the Gun fishing? I was up there a few weeks ago when it was still pretty cold. Has the water warmed above 40 yet?

It's been slow the past couple of weeks, but it just picked up a bunch with the recent warm weather. On saturday I experienced a midge hatch so thick that I couldn't breathe without inhaling some bugs! I caught about 9 fish in 4 hrs. Size 22 black or creme midge patterns were working.
