(Spalding) Things are going well at Eagle Lake. The lake’s trout have moved out of the depths and are feeding near the surface, boat launching is in full operation and the crowds are light. Now is the time to plan your fall adventure to the lake.
“I wouldn’t call the trout fishing great, but it’s pretty darn good and the best fishing is right around the corner,” exclaimed Cliff Speciacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “The trout have moved up into the top 8 feet of the water column and they are hitting well for trollers pulling either watermelon colored Sep’s Grubs or threaded crawlers.”
“Bobber fishing has slowed down quite a bit. The top stretch for trollers seems to be from the Eagle’s Nest down to the Youth Camp. Most of the fish are running 2.5 to 3 pounds, but there have been a few larger fish showing occasionally,” added Spediacci.
Kate Arnold at the Eagle Lake RV Park reported solid action for trollers.
“The trout are in great shape and full of fight,” said Arnold. “We’ve extended the docks and launch ramp at Spalding so launching should be a problem for the duration of the season. Here at the RV park we are running a great special. From now until the end of the season we are offering our RV spots, the 5th wheel and our studio at 20% off the normal rate.”
Tim Noxon of Fish Traveler Guide Service took a hiatus from fishing Eagle Lake this September, but he’s now back at the lake and available for guided fishing trips.Back To Reports
