Clear and cold spring creek with good hatches. You must float; there’s no place to wade. Rising in the Thousand Springs area of Northern California, the Fall River meanders through a broad valley of tawny grassland and pine. To the south and west are a chain of little mountains—Fort, Soldier, Haney—which poke up a couple thousand feet above the valley floor. (These are, indeed, little mountains because Mount Shasta’s snow-capped cone towers 10,000 feet above these peaks, dwarfing them and giving them the appearance of mere foothills.) Gradient on the Fall River is not steep; it seems to belie its name except at its junction with the Pit at the town of Fall River Mills. Species: Rainbow. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing.
