Fall River is fishing well. Spread out and find fish that aren’t constantly bumped in the nose with flies. Blue winged olives, midges and march browns are the predominant hatches right now. On warmer days you may see some pale morning duns and various caddis. The most productive subsurface patterns are small mayfly nymphs or midges. Try small white or olive streamers if things get desperate. The Fall River is as majestic as ever, it’ll be an excellent week out there. 

Suggested Dries: March Brown #12-14, Purple Haze #16-20, Sparkle Dun BWO #16-20, Hackle Stacker BWO #16-20, Olive Haze #16-18, Tilt Wing BWO #16-18, Parachute Adams #16-20
