A friend and I fished the gunpowder on 4/16/10 at the Bunker Hill camp ground site and where Rt 45 crosses the river. There were no trout jumping so we used nymphs, green inch worms, and soft-hackles in riffles and pools. We caught half a dozen trout, the largest 12 inches (but very thin). We also had many other strikes. Apparently stonefly's are still hatching, but we did not see evidence of this. (1/19/13)

This is a beautiful destination for flyfishing with nice scenery. The fish have been very active leaping out of the water for dries but this activity is slowing down. I have been fishing on dries and streamers with an average of 6 fish per trip and some misses. The upper section near falls road is the most fished so hit upstream of the I-83 bridge and you will have success. (1/19/13)
