The Fall River is one of the finest spring creeks in the West. It shares many of the traits that make the Henry's Fork and Silver Creek famous: predictable hatches, crystal clear water, steady flows and water temperature, sight fishing opportunities, and large trout that feed on small bugs. However, the access to Fall River is very restricted. It is only fished from boats, specifically flat-bottomed prams fitted with electric motors and/or small gas engines. Fishing from the boat allows anglers to make deadly downstream drifts to visibly feeding fish.

A typical day on Fall River frequently involves fishing sinking line, nymph, and dry fly techniques. Guides motor up river marking spots with high concentrations of fish and spend the day fishing to those areas. Most guide trips start around 8 or 8:30am and finish up around 5pm.

Fall River is open from late April through mid-November. Any day of the fishing season can bring outstanding fishing. Some of the annual highlights include the hex hatch in June/July and the callibaetis hatch in August/September. If you'd like to book a day on Fall River, check guide schedules for Art Teter and Mike Wright.
