Trout Bite Improves With Fish Concentrated In Deep Water
Now that the trout have had some time to concentrate in deep water areas within the southern basin the bite has picked up dramatically for fish up to 3 pounds.
“It’s been cool up here and that’s really helped the trout bite get back on track,” related Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “The hot depth has been 20 feet deep along the eastern shore of the south end. Once you’ve got the correct depth the fishing is pretty easy. Threaded ‘crawlers and Sep’s Grubs are the best baits. Most of the fish we are catching these days run 2.5 to 3 pounds. I think we are going to have a really memorable fall up here if the action we’ve seen over the past week or so is any indication.
Tim Noxon of Fish Traveler Guide Service also reported good fishing. Noxon is working the stretch from Shrimp Island to Wildcat Point with grubs and worms for quality trout ranging up to 3 pounds.
Bobber anglers are working the shelves near the Eagle Nests for limits of trout. To hook up anglers are drifting worms from 15 to 25 feet deep with the most consistent action coming about 20 feet deep.
The staff at the Eagle Lake RV Park related that their guests were enjoying very good 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 Fish Sniffer Special.
