The Fall River has been recently replenished with a stocking of big rainbows. They seem to be hungry, but pretty much will only eat a nymph or will hunt down a streamer which is a blast. 
I am sure most people that read our reports are not the ones doing this, but the guys at the Fish Hatchery said they stopped stocking the area upstream of the tubes because of all the people ignoring the signs for the habitat restoration project. Look, it should a no brainer that if the streamside habitat is healthy, the stream will be too. What happens when a stream is healthy? It gives the fish a better place to live. Don’t trample places that are being restored. 
There are a lot of access points on the Fall River that will be sweet fishing without destroying some one’s hard work to make our river a better place. 

Keep an eye out this week for Flying Ants! PMD’s are here to stay until fall. BWO’s are important now. Caddis #14-16-18 (CDC and Henryville). Midges #20-24. Yellow Sally #14-16.
