Fly fishing the Fall River

Support Local Journalism


By Tom Robinson Special to the Express On Tuesday May 25 at 7:30 p.m., the Fly Fishers of Davis will hear from Andrew Harris of Confluence Outfitters, via Zoom Webinar, who will be presenting on California’s biggest spring creek, the Fall River. 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. The presentation will cover public access, hatches, and spring creek techniques. Harris lives in Red Bluff, California with his wife Katie and daughters Mackenzie and Madison. Harris puts the “Outfitter” in Confluence Outfitters, as he is the one who answers the phones and emails. Harris really enjoys helping our guests plan their trips. Confluence Outfitters has a great group of guides and a bewildering array of venues in northern California, southern Oregon, and Washington. Harris can help you select the right guide, destination, and time of year for your next fly fishing trip. He is a USCG-licensed Captain which means he can operate a motorized boat in the inland waters of California. He puts this license to good use on the lower reaches of the Sacramento River where he uses his jet boat to fish for striped bass, trout, and steelhead. Harris has been a pioneer of using lightweight spey rods for trout on the Lower Sac. His jet-boat Trout-Spey trips are very popular. Harris also writes regularly for California Fly Fisher magazine and is the author of the Plumas National Forest Fishing Guide, a fly fishing guidebook to the Feather River Country. Harris is also a software developer. He created, a booking system designed for fishing and hunting lodges and outfitters. To register for this Zoom Webinar go to:
