Because it's fed by cool springs, Fall River is a good option during hot weather. It will be crowded in some areas, especially near the hatchery. Mornings and evenings will be the best fishing times.

Evening hatches of midges are common, and a size 20 Griffiths Gnat is often a good choice. Ant patterns and small caddis (size 18 and smaller) are also options. A good strategy is to attach a small nymph, such as a size-18 Pheasant Tail, on a dropper leader attached to the hook bend of a caddis dry fly.

Pale morning dun hatches can also occur here this month.

For more information on August fishing, see the Rivers section of the General Oregon Report
