Eagle Canyon: , by Andrew Harris: 4 stars
It's getting buggy at Eagle Canyon! I stopped by for an hour this afternoon and the mayflies were really coming off. A lot of fish were rising in both ponds. I saw a few big fish in some very skinny water hunting for hatching mayflies. There were a lot of baetis and callibaetis, plus a few terrestrials. Not sure if they were termites or flying ants, but they were big and I'm sure the fish were eating a few.
This is the best time of year to catch a huge Eagle Canyon rainbow on a dry fly. I like to sight-fish in the shallows with a parachute adams and a small nymph dropper just about 10 inches below.
