Fall River Report 7/23/21

Fall River fishing has been excellent. Getting away from the typical access points is a good way to go. Dry fly action has been decent, most fish are being fooled in the mornings and evenings. Pale morning duns and caddis are the major hatches. Sometimes there is some good blue wing olive action. Terrestrial patterns can work well all day long, sometimes they require you to find the fish that want to eat. Nymphing is best with the usual patterns. Zebra midges and small mayflies, no bigger than size 16 are excellent. Try out some split back PMD nymphs before or during a hatch and those should see some attention. When those fish are immovable, reach for the streamer box.
