**​September 6 Return to the Gunpowder, Monkton, MD**
​Let's do it again! This is a great trout resource very close by and a chapter favorite. Lunch and learn will be provided at Backwater Anglers flyshop at 12:30p with a talk from Theaux Le Gardeur. Contact hosts John Graebner, jgraebner13@gmail.com or Josh Young, telephone number 843-437-8520,  if interested, for more information,
 or to coordinate carpools for this trip.

**September 13 & 14 Savage River Overnight and a chance to fish the famous North Branch of the Potomac**The cost will vary with the type of accommodation: there is a campground right on the river and we have space Friday and Saturday night in a cabin by the river, or the Keyser Inn in nearby Keyser, WV is very reasonably priced. Dinner Friday is on your own. It's about a three hour drive, so you might want to eat on the way. Saturday night we will go to Castiglia's, a family style Italian restaurant in Keyser. On Saturday morning we will have coffee and danish with Jeff Lewatowski, a well known guide who will advise us on productive tactics. We will meet at Savage River Outfitters,  2721 Savage River Rd., Bloomington, MD at 8:30. The wading can be tricky, so this trip is for experienced fishermen. Contact  John Graebner, jgraebner13@gmail.com, for information on the accommodations, and car sharing arrangements. This is a great opportunity to enjoy some of the most exciting trout fishing in the Eastern US.
