Trout Bite Gets Better For Fair Size ‘Bows
The trout bite at Eagle Lake has been a bit inconsistent over the past couple weeks, but it looks like things are picking up now.
“I was out with my wife this morning and we put a pair of limits in the boat by 9 o’clock,” related Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “The water temperature has dropped four degrees in recent days and that seems to have sparked the bite a little. The trout we got were all up within 5 feet of the surface. I had downriggers out all morning, but never got hit down deep.”
“The trout have been a little spooky, so I’ve been employing Sep’s inline side planers. They work really well and all of our fish were hooked using them,” tipped Spediacci.
“I’ve been working the water near Shrimp Island. I’ve been keeping the boat over 25 feet of water. The top offerings have been Sep’s grubs in either brown or watermelon. If I had a complaint it would be that the fish seem to be running a little small. The biggest trout we are seeing run 2.5 pounds and the average is a lot closer to 2. I think we’ll start seeing larger fish as we get into the fall bite,” Spediacci related.
According to the folks at the Eagle Lake RV Park, bobber anglers are hooking up while fishing near the Eagle’s Nest. Anglers are drifting worms from 10 to 20 feet deep with the most consistent action coming about 10 feet deep.
