Fall River Fish Report for 8-14-2021
Don’t forget what a good terrestrial river Fall River can be
Fall River - La Pine, OR (Deschutes County)
by The Fly Fishers Place
The Fall River– small leeches and tiny midge nymphs along with Tungsten Micro Mayfly Nymphs, Rainbow Warriors and Euro Nymphs with heavy tungsten beads. You can nymph the leech Euro style or under an indicator, but the best way to do it is with a slow sink tip. The new un-beaded pine squirrel leeches are money. Same story as when I wrote the last report Monday: There are some PMD’s hatching mixed with Caddis and some small Yellow Sallies and even a few BWO’s. I wouldn’t go to the Fall River without dries, but I would go this week expecting more subsurface fishing.
Don’t forget what a good terrestrial river Fall River can be. Everything from Grasshoppers to Ants and Beetles is part fo the food chain in this little spring creek.
Stay late and avoid some crowds by fishing after dinner to dark. Swing a soft hackle or keep an eye open for Rusty There are PMD and BWO Spinners at dusk. Dusk is also a time when the shade is on the water, and the humidity rises in the river corridor and that means a likely prime time for a hatch to happen.
