Current River Conditions: Fall River closes for the season on November 15th. Fishing has been fair to good. No crowds. It's a beautiful time of the year to fish this incredible spring creek.

Dry fly fishing is best between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Hatches of BWOs, PMDs, occur most days. Wet weather can bring huge hatches of BWOs and Mahogany Duns. The SpunDun is a good Mahogany Dun pattern.

Current River Conditions: Fishing remains great this week on Fall River. Water conditions are good, insect hatches are best in the mornings. The rainbows are eating a #16-18 dark brown sedge (Caddis), #16-18 PMDs and BWOs are available daily. Best dry fly fishing is going to be found in the upper to middle reaches. Go get your fishing in on Fall River. Season ends November 15th.

Suspending a #18 black midge patterns under a small indicator on long, really long to your backing drifts will increase your chances of finding more than a few rainbows on the end of your fly rod. Try #16-18 Pheasant Tail Nymphs too! Small Pheasant Tail nymphs are a staple pattern on Fall River, imitating the PMD and BWO nymphs effectively. The classic way to fish subsurface patterns on Fall River is to swing the flies by quartering your cast downstream. A slow to intermediate 10' Poly Leader can produce a perfect swing, allowing the nymph to suspend like an emerging insect.

"Crowds" are not how we'd describe Fall River these days. Right now is one if not the very best times to fish Fall River. Water conditions are great and the fishing has been good! Best bite is in the morning through 4:00 PM. The bite seems to die off near sundown.
