Fishing Slows As Trout Scatter And Move Toward Deep Water
Fishing at Eagle Lake is in transition. The trout have moved out of the shallows, but they have yet to stack up in deep water. As a result anglers are struggling to find and hook fish.
“The fishing is very slow right now,” related Tim Noxon of Fish Traveler Guide Service. “The trout have pretty much moved out of the shallow water, but they are not locked into the thermocline yet. If you get out early and troll grubs and worms you can average a fish per rod. If you wait until the fish re-concentrate in deep water areas in the southern basin the action will be a lot better. Hopefully that will happen by the end of the month.”
“I’ve been getting a few fish, but to do it you’ve got to get out early. Everything is pretty much over by 8 o’clock,” tipped Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “My best producers have been worms and grubs. The fish are running about 2.5 pounds. I talked to the biologist and he said he saw a 3 pounder this week, but that’s the largest trout I’ve heard about.”
The folks at the Eagle Lake RV Park reported challenging fishing, but they also reported that boat launching at the south end was not an issue. This is great news since this looks to be a low water year. If you are heading up to Eagle Lake with your RV be sure to call the folks at the RV park and ask about the Fish Sniffer Special.
