Fat Rainbows Bury Rods!

Species: Trout
Location: Eagle Lake,

Eagle Lake is currently the scene of red hot rainbow trout fishing, with some guides reporting more than 20 hookups per day! The trout are still near the surface and both trollers and bobber anglers are scoring.

“The last couple days the trout bite here at Eagle Lake has been outstanding,” related Cliff Speciacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “I’ve been using both bobber and trolling tactics. I’m starting out the day fishing worms under bobbers in about 6 feet of water. We’ve been doing that for about 90 minutes and then we troll for a few hours. Sep’s grubs in greens and browns have been very productive when trolled from 7 to 8 feet deep over 20 feet of water in the area around Wildcat Point and Shrimp Island. We’ve been getting 8 to 10 fish per day that range up to a very solid 3 pounds.”

Bryan Roccucci of Big Daddy’s Guide Service has also been spending time fishing at Eagle and reported solid to very good action.

“I’ve been doing very well at Eagle while trolling black perch pattern Uncle Larry’s Spinners tipped with olive Sep’s grubs. Most of the trout we hook are quality 2 to 3 pounders with a few smaller and bigger fish mixed in. The best fishing has been between Shrimp Island and Wildcat Point from the surface to 5 feet deep,” said Roccucci.
