Eagle Canyon Report by Andrew Harris

Guest report from Tony Carbonell from Red Bluff: "Eagle Canyon Trophy Trout Lakes is not just a fly fishing outing, it is an experience. The fish here are truly one of a kind. Not only are they colossal in size but their girth seems to be centered in their shoulders  which truly give them an advantage over the novice angler. Bull runs  and chasing fish down is not uncommon.  If you want to challenge your  fly fishing skills try hooking into one of the double digit size trout  that reside in the two lakes. Pulled hooks, snapped tippet, broken hooks  and even the occasional boot failure can result in lost fish. The  fishing was truly incredible. Bring an assortment of gear. We used a  number of different flies with a multitude of presentation techniques.  We hooked most of our fish stripping steamers but also used small nymphs  under an indicator and spey rod techniques. It is challenging, fun and a  must do if you have ever held a fly rod."

Guest Report from Dave who has been to Eagle Canyon more than 30 times since 1993. He and his buddy George fished the lakes on opening weekend in 2010 and have returned many times since. "Lakes were in great shape, both produced well. Most fish came on stripped flys. This year is one of the best for girthy double digit fish. Eagle Canyon is a 'One of a kind Fishery!!'"
