Type of Water: Freshwater
Species: Rainbow trout, Brown trout, Brook trout
Spring runoff is subsiding on the Eagle and flows are dropping. We'll be floating the Eagle in the next couple of days! Flows are still on the high side for wade fishing but if you find some slower water the trout will eat. Use caution while floating or wading! Try nymphing with large golden stonefly patterns and caddis larvae and emergers. We are just days away from the big summer caddis hatch and fantastic dry fly fishing on the Eage!
Guide Tip: Look for slow water and fish it hard!
