November Tips


► Be prepared for fussy fish. They see lots of anglers all year, so you may need a 6X or 7X tippet, a 50-foot cast, and a downstream presentation when fishing a dry fly.

► When the weather turns frigid--which may or may not happen in November--trout will migrate up the river, making the headwaters section the best place to seek them because the water is warmer there.


► The hatchery and springs areas offer the best access, especially once there is snow on the ground.

► Fall River is open from its source to above the falls (about four miles).
