I stopped in at Eagle Canyon today to visit with longtime guests John, Tom & Dean.  The grab was pretty slow other than for about 2 hours mid-day.  They made up for the slow fishing by landing some truly huge fish today.  The best flies were a red blood midge size 14-16, zebra midges in brown size 16-18, and a small tan mayfly nymph size 16-18.

Here are some photos forward by Tony from Red Bluff. His group fished Eagle Canyon this past Saturday, January 6th.  Tony said: 

"Always a great time. The fishing was slow at times but steady all throughout the day. The fish seemed to attack our flies in flurries. As a group we hooked 25+ fish and landed about 18-20 fish. The largest about 10-12 lbs. We caught a surprising amount of fish on a size 14 gold hare's ear under an indicator. Very exciting hooking big fish on small flies. I was talking to the guys and we are already planning a trip for next year."

Part of Tony's group is doing the Combo Special so they will be fishing the Trinity River with us, too.  The combo special has a minimum of 4 anglers and you spend one day at Eagle Canyon and then another day on the Lower Sac or Trinity River with our guides.  The price is $350 per person for 4 anglers, $325 per person for 6 anglers, or $300 per person for  8  anglers.

Longtime guest Ron had this to say about his two-day trip to Eagle Canyon:

"The fishing was very good the first day and much slower the second day.  The fish are getting bigger and bigger!!  All of us caught fish both days and had a great time."

This report is from long-time Eagle Canyon guest Dave Earl, who fished yesterday:

"Stripping streamers was on fire in the morning, all 3 of us had quality fish landed within minutes. Later we had to switch to nymphs under an indicator to get grabs. We all landed about 10 fish each including a 10 pounder and  a 12 pounder . I'm pretty sure  the same 12 pounder was caught a second time about  2 hours later. Eagle Canyon: a one of a kind flyfishing experience!"

Today was Opening Day at Eagle Canyon.  We enjoyed a beautiful day and some pretty good fishing, too.  The weather was almost too nice - there wasn't a ripple on the surface all day.  The bite was definitely slow for Opening Day but everyone hooked into multiple fish.  The largest to hand was about 7 pounds and I saw quite a few 10 pound plus fish hooked briefly.  There are some big fish out there with flies (if not entire leaders) in their mouths!

I spent another long day at Eagle Canyon today getting ready for Opening Day on Saturday.  The new shade structure is coming along nicely.  Much more importantly, what about the fish?  The fish are huge this year!  Our average fish is 7.2 pounds.  We have a lot of fish over 10# in the ponds this year.  The weekend of Dec 16/17, just one week after opening day, is still open right now.  Jump on it and take a crack at these big fish before they see a lot of anglers

I've been up at Eagle Canyon pretty much every day this week making preparations for Opening Day this Saturday.  The lakes look great!  Our shade structure by the upper shed finally bit the dust this winter and I am busy building a replacement.  We have plenty of openings left in December but we're down to just 5 open weekends left for the whole season.  Mid-week availability is pretty good for the most part.

We have just set our 2017-18 schedule for Eagle Canyon.  Last year was so busy that we couldn't fit in everybody that wanted to come, so this year we're adding an extra month to our season.  Opening Day is December 9th, 2017 and we will be open through mid-April of 2018.  We are taking reservations for the 2017-18 season now, so jump on your preferred date soon!  Everything other than the schedule is the same as last year - same rates, same rest day before every party, and plenty of big trophy trout!

Report by one of our regular guests Dave:

"High winds made parts of the day tougher but we had a fairly consistent bite throughout the day. About half way through action on stripped flies slowed but the fish got grabby when we switched to nymphs under indicators.  We all caught fish and landed about 25 fish between the 3 of us with a couple in the 28” range. The fish looked at fought well with plenty of LDR's too. This was my third trip this year  and was my best in the 2017 season."

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.

Had perfect weather yesterday at Eagle Canyon for some fun stillwater action. 
Morning was a bit slow but things picked up once we got a little chop on the water. 

Streamers, nymphs and midges worked best for us both stripping and under an 
indicator.  

Conditions at the lake are great right now with hatches going on throughout the day to keep you busy.

Skip from southern California had this to say about his trip to Eagle Canyon today:

"We all caught fish and had an excellent time.  Lower lake was hot.  Heater got us warm for lunch.  Coffee in the morning was a nice touch.  We would do it again in a heart beat. Thanks Skip.  By the way....The Fish were gigantic and made for big smiles"

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.

Conditions were chilly and breezy for the Cal-Shingle group last Friday. 
The fish just weren't into it until things started to thaw out a bit. After lunch the grab turned on and several nice fish were brought to the net. 

We're starting to see hatches of March Browns (size 14ish). Coaxing a monster rainbow to hit your dry fly is an absolute blast!
