Update for Friday June 29, 2018
Rain rain go away!! Finally! Lower Savage fishing good at 200 cvs...a little high but clear. Shrould be coming down to a more normal flow after the white water release for kayakers this Sunday. The Sulphur hatch on the Savage is coming to an end...still a late evening spinner fall last night...but weak. Yellow and lime Sallies and black caddis as well as midges are the hatches now. Upper river and Brookie streams are all at good levels and fishing good.
Don’t be caught without all you need to get on the water. We do phone orders. So, if you need anything - give one of us a call and we'll ship it to your door. Also, we still have good availability for guide trips. Our shop is located right on the lower Savage river. If you're looking for some great fly fishing for wild Brown Trout and native Brook trout, then let us guide you on the lower Savage. North Branch of the Potomac is still high.
Be sure to refer to the USGS website for current flows for area streams. Also, the NAB site will give 3 day flow projections for the lower Savage and for the lower North Branch Potomac River. Best to check the gauges and look at the chart to see if the streams are rising or dropping.
A good flow to fish the lower Savage in 50-150 cfs, upper Savage 40-125 cfs, and the N. Branch Potomac Barnum guage is 350 cfs or less for wading. Under 200 cfs is difficult for floating the N. Branch
The following site will give three day projections for the Savage and the Potomac tailwaters.
