The Fall River has been fishing great. There were great blue wing olive hatches during the cooler weather. Now with warmer weather expect more pale morning duns, caddis and even a few green drakes. Nymphing is always consistent with small midges and mayfly patterns on the Fall. Bigger nymphs typically get less attention but they can be worth a try. A larger mayfly or small stonefly nymph can get the job done, although once the fish see big bugs too many times they may get cautious. Small green balanced leeches have a place on your nymph rig too. Strpping streamers can entice an eat when all else fails.
