Eagle Canyon Report by DJ Spivey

I recently had the chance to fish a few days up on a eagle canyon with a great group of guys. With harsh weather rolling through Northern California we decided to head east out of red bluff up to the Eagle canyon lakes. Starting off strong on smaller Woolley bugger patterns we stripped up some huge fish! Both days we picked up fish on streamers, indicator rigs and dry dropper set ups. If your looking to have a shot at some big rainbow trout eagle canyon is definitely a spot to check out!

Regular guest Tony from Red Bluff says: "The Eagle Canyon experience is truly a one of a kind fly fishing event.  Great times and great memories complimented with extraordinary fishing.  Everyone in our group hooked fish. All in all we had 25+ fish peeling  line off our reels and we landed about 17 fish that can only be  described as Jurassic in nature. Eagle Canyon is truly a spectacular  experience to any fishing enthusiast."
