Eagle Canyon Report by Andrew Harris

Here is a fishing report from longtime Eagle Canyon guest Rocky: "Eagle Canyon fished really well. Had a few lulls, but steady fishing  throughout the day. The highlight of my day was catching fish on dry  flies. I think in all the years I've been fishing there, I only caught  one fish on a dry. Monday it was multiple fish. Was fishing a dry  dropper at the end of the day (#18 PT under a 14 Parachute Adams).  Really was just using the adams as an indicator. Low and behold, they  start smacking the dry. Landed dozens of fish throughout the day.  Balanced Leeches, Squirmy Wormies, Zebra Midges all caught fish. Thanks  again for your great guides and great locations. Can't wait to do it  again."
