Fall River Update August 5, 2022

The Fall river has been fishing well.  Nymphing is picking up the majority of fish. Tungsten bead nymphs are especially effective on the fall as they get down to the strike zone nice and quick. Copper john’s, rainbow warriors, eggs, and two bits are some of our favorites on the fall. Stripping streamers around some of the downed timber is also a good way to fool some more aggressive trout. Dry-dropper setups using beetles, ants, or chubbys is also a fun and effective approach to fishing the fall. The river is seeing a lot of pressure these days so spreading out and exploring some areas you haven’t before may be to your advantage.
