The Fish Sniffer - Trout To 4.2 Pounds Highlight Outstanding Opening Week Fishing!
Trout To 4.2 Pounds Highlight Outstanding Opening Week Fishing!

Written By: Cal Kellogg, June 9, 2014
Species: Trout
Location: Eagle Lake,

Eagle Lake opened for trout fishing on Memorial Day weekend and anglers have been nailing trout ever since. Early in the morning anglers are working shallow water. Later in the day they move out over deeper water but continue to work the surface.

“The opening week has been very good up here at Eagle Lake,” related Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service. “One of my friends got a fish that went 4.2 pounds and there have been a good number of 3 pounders landed too. The average fish is running from 2 to 2.5 pounds.”

“Guys are scoring with a variety of different offerings including grubs, worms and flies. The hottest area is in the south end from Shrimp Island to Wildcat Point. Almost all the action has been up near the surface,” added Spediacci.

At the Eagle Lake RV Park, Candy reported limits style action for trollers pulling Red Dogs, Needlefish and flies.

“The trout are up near the surface and most guys have been doing really well. The smallest fish are running about 2 pounds and much larger rainbows have been landed,” related Candy.

Boat launching wasn’t a problem during the opening week of the season and isn’t expected to be an issue due to recent ramp improvements.
