Fall River has been fishing great this spring. As we head into summer, I expect nothing but ‘more good fishing’.
By the middle of June, we should be into the Hexegenia Hatch. That’s an evening event ( the bugs come off about 9:00 PM, no earlier) and although it’s incredibly spectacular, the fish can be tough to get if the flies don’t stay on the water.
Hot Flies: Small brown or black nymphs in #16 ~ 18, #18 cream colored parachute PMD’s (they look like an Adams, but cream colored sorta like a PMD), Olive or black leeches are a standard any day.
Best Spots: Try fishing the lower river to get away from weekend ‘crowds’. But don’t let other anglers scare you off. There’s plenty of fish to go around!
Give me a call at 530-336-6110 or contact me to get a date on my calendar that is filling up. We have great water this year and I expect some of the best fishing we have had in years!
