Eagle Canyon Report by Andrew Harris

Guest report from Tony who fished Eagle Canyon today: "Eagle Canyon this year was a little tougher than in previous years. We  fished right before a storm was going to move in so I don’t know if that  had an effect on the fishing. Regardless, we still hooked about 25 fish  in our group and landed 17. Considering  the fish we hooked are around  6-10 lbs. that is a banner day in most other fisheries. The fish seemed  to be especially hot this year. We had one fish that made multiple runs  and took our angler down to the backing 3 times before becoming  unbuttoned. This type of fishing makes Eagle Canyon a truly special  venue."

Here is a guest report from our guests at Eagle Canyon today:"We had a great day, sunny and a bit breezy at times but all in all a very pleasant day. Enjoyed visiting with your host Mitch and having the lakes to ourselves was great. Both lakes produced quality fish equally fishing  from the bank. Floating line with # 12 black  leach or # 12 olive damsel worked consistently. Hooked numerous all pretty much carbon copies of the fish in the photo with the  exception of the one hooked and landed that was larger."

Guest Report from Dave who fished Eagle Canyon today:"This was my 30th trip to ECL since it re-opened in 2010 and the best day so far. Water was clear and we had a slight ripple on the water most of the day. The fish were grabby, healthy and hot. Most fish were between 6 and 10 lbs. Stripping and indicator methods both worked. Scot and his nephew Will both had their best day here too. Eagle Canyon, a one of a kind fishery!!"
