If you enjoy cool, clear, deep-running, classic spring-fed mountain rivers with thick and lush mats of vegetation, Fall River might just be your ticket to trout heaven. This is northern California trout water at its finest, but you’ll need a boat or float tube to fly fish the best areas. The majority of the bank access is through private property. Prams and johnboats with electric motors are best for working this wide and spacious waterway—usually 100 to 250 yards across. A two-anchor system is a good way to position your boat. If you’re a first-timer, a guide is the best way to learn this river. Types of Fish: Brown and rainbow trout. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
