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.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.

November 15, 2019 - The fall is still fishing quite well from the headwaters all the way below the falls. The fish are spreading back out and hiking a little to get away from some of the more pressured water can be well worth it.
