The FFP guides have been hitting the Fall River with gusto lately and finding some very good fishing on a variety of dries and Euro Nymphs. PMD's, Yellow Sally's, Ant's, Beetle's, Olive Caddis and a Green Drake or two on most days that get the fish coming up and acting feisty. We've been knocking the … Continue reading Fall River fishing report 6/10/19
Fall River has been a lot of fun especially on dries with PMD's and Green Drake hatches, Ants, Beetles, some Yellow Sally's and a few Olive Caddis mixed in. We've been doing really well with Euro Nymphing Perdigon's and Jigs, 2 Bit Hookers, Micro Mayfly's, Zebra Midges and WD50's. You can also fish many of … Continue reading Fall River fishing report 5/31/19
Fall River is looking perfect, with water conditions and plenty of fish in the system. We've been out recently with good success on Euro Jigs, Eggs and a Tan Mop Fly as well as BWO's and #18 Adams on top. Fishing is good all the way from the Falls area to the Camp Ground area.
Fall River is fishing well, but please do keep in mind the access to many of the places is still tough with the snow depths and access on any of the side roads. Adam from the shop was there a couple of days ago and had excellent fishing on WD40's and other BWO emergers. The … Continue reading Fall River fishing report 3/22/19
There is a lot of snow down in the south county area making the access to the river in a lot of places tough, but the hatchery is a for sure, and I heard someone walked into the falls down the road and had the place to himself but also really good fishing. BWO's are … Continue reading Fall River fishing report 3/12/19
There is a fair bit of snow on the banks making access a little more tricky, but it's not a big deal for most people. I'd say the biggest issues are getting out of the river with the snow, and in some places the layer of pure ice under the snow. So be aware and … Continue reading Fall River fishing report 2/15/19
The new year has been a good one at the Fall River with plenty of those big stockers around the hatchery along with plenty of average sized trout from the Camp Ground down to the Falls. Afternoons have seen decent BWO and Midge hatches and finally some tiny little Black Stoneflies. Cripples are the ticket … Continue reading Fall River fishing report 1/15/19
My guides and staff have been out playing a lot and Fall River has been high on the list lately. Great nymphing day to day and on the warmer afternoons a really nice BWO hatch will come off about 1 or 2. Look for some midge action (nymphs and dries) too.
Fall River (and the Metolius) are the best bets for Central Oregon at the moment, with the consistent temperatures of spring water not allowing the rivers to freeze up, and keeping the bugs and fish active. We are seeing some BWO's in the afternoon, especially around 1 or 2 PM, mixed with some small black … Continue reading Fall River Fishing Report 12/6/18
fishing on the Fall River is good, with an afternoon BWO hatch bringing up fish to dries, and some midge hatches also brings up the selective sippers (don't forget your 7x). The best action is on nymphs right now, with Jigs, Perdigons, 2 Bit Hookers, Tungsten Micro Mayflies and Zebra Midges all doing well matching … Continue reading Fall River Fishing Report 11/17/18
