The mild winter has presented great opportunities to fish so far this winter. We are fortunate to have access to all sections of the Fall River without the concern of snow getting in the way!  By the looks of things, that may change soon. If you are looking for dry fly action, be sure to focus your efforts on overcast days to target the BWO hatch. The hatch has been a bit sporadic, but if you hit it right, you are certain to have a good time. This time of year is great to take a walk along the bank and to fish to rising fish. If you prefer to sight fish in one area, we recommend utilizing streamers or a dry dropper rig.
