Prettyboy Reservoir is located in northern Baltimore County, Md., on Falls Road, 22 mi/35 km NNW of Baltimore; 9 MI/14.5 km long; 39°37'N 76°42'W. Formed by Prettyboy Dam (concrete; 167 ft/51 m high, 845 ft/258 m long), built (1933) for Baltimore water supply. Gunpowder Falls State Park is located below the dam, to the east.
The Gunpowder Falls is formed by outflow of Prettyboy Reservoir, and is one of the premier tailwater trout streams in the Mid-Atlantic region. Limitation: catch and return only mainstream from Prettyboy Dam downstream to Bluemount Road, artificial flies only. The following areas are Put-And-Take; mainstream from Corbett Road downstream to the hiker/biker bridge located approximately one mile downstream of Phoenix Road; and from Cromwell Bridge downstream to the Interstate 95 bridge.
