Larger Trout Show Up As Fall Bite Improves
It’s a familiar story for folks that fish Eagle Lake in the fall. The water temperature has been dropping and as a result the trout have moved shallow and are on the feed. The average rainbow goes 2 pounds and fish over 3 have been landed.
“I’d say for fall fishing the bite is decent and I think it’s going to get quite a bit better over the next few weeks,” disclosed Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “I’ve been spending my time trolling the shallows between Wildcat Point and Shrimp Island. The fish I’m hooking are cruising from 7 to 8 feet deep. Sep’s grubs in either brown or watermelon have been the top offering.”
“The lake is definitely down, but launching isn’t an issue. If you’ve been planning a trip to Eagle, I’d advise you to hit the lake within the next few weeks as the bite should be pretty darn good,” added Spediacci.
The folks at the Eagle Lake RV Park also reported limit style action for both trollers and bobber anglers. The bobber crowd is soaking night crawlers 8 to 15 feet deep at the Youth Camp and along the shelves offshore of Black Mountain.
