We’ve been seeing good fishing at the Fall River. As summer comes to a close, the crowds start to subside and the fish let down their guard slightly. The recent stocking has provided the river with some fish that are more likely to take a fly. Hatches mainly consist of pale morning duns and caddis, blue wing olives show up in the evening and on cooler days. As usual, nymphing is far more productive than dry fly fishing and euro nymphing increases your odds tenfold. Euro style jigged flies that are size 16 or smaller work really well at the Fall. Imitating small mayflies can also be a good bet. Never go to the Fall River without zebra midges, they will often produce the most fish. Streamers are a decent way to go, especially as fall comes closer. Try to find places away from the typical access points that hold fish. The fish that’s seen the least flies is the most likely to bite.
