Rainbows Abound For Deep Water Trollers

Species: Trout
Location: Eagle Lake,

(Spalding) Limits are coming quickly for trollers probing the depth at Eagle Lake. The trout are stacked up and feeding heavily and as result trollers are doing very well.

“There are solid numbers of 2 to 2.5 pound trout being caught at Eagle Lake,” reported Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “I’ve been trolling Sep’s grubs and threaded night crawlers from 25 to 30 feet deep. The eastern side of the southern basin has been the best area.”

Other lures that have been producing fish at Eagle include Rapalas in orange or black over gold and Speedy Shiners. In terms of Speedy Shiners, frog and orange have been the most consistent colors. For the best success using these lures the trolling speed should be between 2.5 and 3 mph.

Bobber anglers are working the shelves near the Eagle Nests for limits of trout, but the fishing is tougher then it was last week.

The staff at the Eagle Lake RV Park related that their guests were enjoying productive trolling and bobber fishing in the south part of the lake. They also related that launching is not a problem at Gallatin in the south end.

If you are heading up to Eagle Lake with your RV this fall, be sure to call the folks at the RV Park and ask about the Fall Fish Sniffer Special.
