Fall River fishing report 2/1/17

The Fly Fisher's Place

More snow on the horizon for the next few days, and that doesn’t help access to our favorite Southern (County) Spring Creek. Next week looks warmer and it appears the snow will change to rain. I like those days for BWO hatches.

Access is pretty limited at the moment to the Fish Hatchery although I’ve heard a few brave souls 4×4’ing down the the Tubes.

Fish populations appear good. Afternoon BWO and Midge hatches have been bringing fish to the surface. You want 7x fluorocarbon for tippet! We have 8x too when they get extra picky on small midges. I use it. It’s fun and it helps.

Nymphing with Eggs, Micro May’s, 2 Bit Hookers and small Silver Lightning Bugs have been best.

Streamer fishing is fairly good in some places, with Rufus patterns on a Sink Tip catching some fish here and there. I also like a Black Lead Eye Wooly Bugger this time of year.

Go Falcon’s.
