Fishing the Fall River

The fall river is extremely clear water and the fish are familiar with common fishing tactics; it's stealth or bust on this river. In fact, it's so clear that you're hardly fishing - you're hunting with a fly. There's plenty of different methods that can work, but it's definitely one of the most trying rivers in the area. The Fall river is beautiful; there's a lot of downed trees, which makes this perfect for small terrestrial flies.
