(Spalding) Outstanding fall trout fishing is on tap at Eagle Lake. The water temperature is coming down and hungry trout are moving up!
“We are experiencing really good fishing right now. I’d say things really started to take off about two weeks ago. Now the bite is really consistent,” related Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service.
“The nights are cool, dipping down into the low thirties and the water temperature on the surface is now running 61 degrees. The cooling water has brought the trout up near the surface in the southern end of the lake.”
“I’ve been doing most of my trolling and a little bobber fishing in the shallows from Shrimp Island to Wildcat. You can nail easy limits with the bobber, but you can also do extremely well slow trolling Sep’s Grubs in brown and green tones. However you decide to fish, keep your gear close to shore and you’ll have no problem hooking trout. I’ve got a couple awesome 3 pound fish over the past week and lots of the standard 2.5’s,” added Spediacci.
Tim Noxon of Fish Traveler Guide Service will be back at Eagle Lake by the time this issue of the Fish Sniffer hits the newsstands. According to Tim, trolled grubs are working very well in the area from Pelican Point to the Youth Camp.
The folks at the Eagle Lake RV Park report good fishing for both trollers and bobber anglers and related that due to improvements boat launching will be available until lake ice forms.Back To Reports
