September on Fall River is just about a closed book, it came in fishing good and is going out fishing good. The big fish just kept coming in September. Deep water small bugs and light angler traffic on Fall River made September fly fishing come together as one of the better months so far, this season. September brought some cloudy and light rainy days. On the cloudy days, we had some excellent dry fly fishing. Windy days seemed to be the norm the last couple of weeks but that did not stop the big fish. They still hit our offerings on the swing and the indicator.
Now looking forward to October with any luck the good fishing will continue on Fall River. Today I saw three different types of May flies on the water. The mornings have been chilly making the better fishing start a little later in the morning.
As the weather starts to change the types of bugs we see will change with it. Right now, we are still seeing the small fall baetis, I have seen a few mahogany’s starting, and we have been seeing a scattering of the bigger PMD’ s still. So, for flies for the first part of October, I am going to say that most of the flys that were working in Sept will be the choice for the beginning of October.
- Small Birds Nest
- Soft Hackel PT’s
- Small Leeches
- Baetis Nymphs
- Olive and Black Soft Hackles
Weather is going to be the key for October. As it changes so will the bugs and the way we fish them. I will try to stay current with info for you via the blog. But it is always best to call for the latest info. Tight lines
