Fall River report 9/3/15

The Fly Fisher's Place

I was on the river yesterday down by the tubes, above the tubes was bleak, but down to the falls much better. There were also a bunch of fish at the Hatchery. Didn’t make it up to the Camp Ground or the Headwaters, but I’ve heard some fish are up in there from some friends.
ODFW is stocking the Brood Stock Rainbows in the morning, so keep an eye out for some BIG fish.
Yesterday there was a really good Baetis hatch from 2 to 4. The KD Dun and a little parachute BWO were good, the KD by far the better fly. Needed 7x fluoro to really get the fish to take.
Had a good conversation with a customer today who was also there yesterday and using a our little Bright Pink Rufus with good success.
I’m a huge fan of the egg flies this time of year and running a Zebra Midge or PMD Split Case Emerger as a trailer.
