Yay! They're Making Improvements To Fall River Public Access Point (Just In Time For The Drought)

By Tom Chandler 1/10/2014

Sadly, this weekend's "big, drought-busting" storm is looking more like a warmup than the real event (and the real event is nowhere on the horizon).

Which means it's time to talk... spring creeks.

Sure, call it a defeatist attitude, but when the skies deny you next year's small stream water, it's time to start aiming next year's fishing trips at places like Fall River -- a giant spring creek that fishes well, but runs through private land.

Access is an issue.

The good news is the Fall River Conservancy and CalTrout made a lot of improvements to CalTrout's public access area. Easier to park, launch, secure your boat, etc.

CalTrout access to Fall River CalTrout's Fall River access point offers some improvements. 

It's all part of CalTrout and the Fall River Conservancy's multi-year effort to restore Hat Creek and the Fall River -- efforts which include streambank restoration, access improvements, etc.

Restoring some of California's best spring creeks is a good idea in any case, but with the state in the grip of a multi-year drought, the project is starting to look positively prescient.

See you wondering where to fish next year, Tom Chandler.
