Eagle Canyon: , by Andrew Harris: 3 stars
Fishing was good today at Eagle Canyon, but we had to wait for it. The weather was incredible all day with just the slightest breeze and a great view of Mt. Lassen. Fishing was tough all morning with cruising fish refusing our flies time and again. We had a little action on a brown rubberlegs size 8 but mostly refusals. The bite turned on around 2pm and the fly of the day was the "baetis nymph" pattern formerly of Idywilde Flies and now sold by Umpqua, size 16 or 18. It's a drab grey pattern with a bead and no flashy stuff. It worked well fished under an indicator. We fished a lot of 5X tippet today - that was a challenge but it seemed to help get us more grabs. The bite got really good around 4 to 5pm.
