The Fall River is slowing a bit, probably late summer pressure and less fish stocked lately. It is still a good place to target but it’s not quite as vibrant as before. Maybe as we get more Fall like weather the fish will play better.

There are still PMD’s and a lot more BWO’s now. Look for Mahogany Duns too. I always like a Gray Comparadun for the match of the Mahogany Duns, and the Upright Rusty Spinner does double duty for mahogany duns too.

Micro Streamers and Leeches are still a favorite. Euro Nymphing is day in and day out your best bet for putting fish in the net when the hatch isn’t on.
