The Fish Sniffer - Bite Rebounds As Trout Move Deep
Bite Rebounds As Trout Move Deep

Written By: Cal Kellogg, July 19, 2014
Species: Trout
Location: Eagle Lake,

After several weeks of hot shallow water trout action, rising water temperatures scattered Eagle Lake’s trout and slowed the bite. Now that the trout have re-concentrated in deep water areas, the bite has rebounded and anglers are once again landing limits of hard fighting rainbows.

“The trout fishing at Eagle Lake is getting good again. The warming water temperatures slowed things down for a few days,” disclosed Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “The trout have dropped down into the 20 to 30 foot range and anglers are hooking trout while trolling from 25 to 30 feet deep in the south end.”

“I’ve been using Sep’s grubs almost exclusively for limits of 2 to 3 pound trout. Other guys have been pulling small broken back Rapalas with success,” added Spediacci.

The staff at the Eagle Lake RV Park also reported solid fishing for trollers working 20 to 35 feet deep.

According to the folks at the RV park, boat launching isn’t a problem in the south end at this time and it looks as if small and medium size boats will have zero problems throughout the season.
