FALL RIVER FLY FISHING GUIDED TRIPS AND CONDITIONS

The Fall River is one of my favorite places to fish! Maybe it’s because I am a Spring Creek Fanatic or because this is  where I learned how to fly fish. It’s a 10 mile long Spring Creek and is a tributary to the Deschutes. While there are a few  places that are private property the river is mostly open to the public.  From the Headwaters, down through the campground, the horseshoe bend and the Fish Hatchery is all very accessible water with only one small piece of private property. From the Hatchery to the Bridge on road 4360 there is another section of private water with just a little public access above the bridge. From the Bridge down to the Falls is all good water. All of the water from the Headwaters to the Falls  is open for year round fishing. Below the Falls is mostly public except the last little piece where it flows into the Deschutes. The area below the Falls down to the Deschutes is open in late-May and closes at the end of September.

The Fall River has diverse and prolific hatches. These include BWO’s, PMD’s, Green Drakes, Mahogany Duns, Yellow Sally’s, Midges and Caddis. Terrestrials are very hot here and Attractor dries can work miracles. Because there are so many lava ledges for the fish to hide under, you’ll need a selection of small, tungsten  bead head nymphs. Streamer fishing on the Fall River can produce nice takes and truly exciting action.
