The Fall River is a major tributary to the Pit River, which it joins just below Fall River Mills. Resting between the Sierra Nevada and Cascade Mountain ranges, it is a slow-moving, meandering mountain stream renowned for its fly fishing. Most of its waters come from mountain springs. Although the Fall River Valley comprises over 600 square miles of drainage, relatively little surface flow ends up in the river due to the porous volcanic nature of the region. U.S. presidents from Herbert Hoover to Dwight Eisenhower and Hollywood stars from Bing Crosby to Clint Eastwood have fished its exceptionally pristine waters.
In addition to fly fishing, the Fall River Valley offers excellent duck hunting and an 18-hole championship golf course. The area is also very popular with bicyclists, and is home to the annual Fall River Century Bike Ride in July.
