Beat the chill at Eagle Lake

Eagle Lake - Susanville, CA (Lassen County)


by Nor Cal Fish Reports

Water temps are 49 to 52 degrees and with upcoming chilly high ambient temps in the 20's, we will see solid mid 40's by the end of the week. A note for fly fishermen/women walking the shoreline and wading: First, fish the water before you walk in it. I pulled two nice trout out of a shallow gravel bar 5 ft from shore 5 minutes after a guy walked right by them getting to a better point. Second: With cold temps and snow on the ground, felt soles on your boots or waders are not ideal to walk in. With water temps dropping this week, fish are scattered in the water column. It isn't unusual to find fish deeper any time of the year on the east side, especially once the bite slows down on top. However, I always run a topline & it really, never fails when the fish are active. We are still finding great topline action 4-8ft deep using brown, cinnamon leech and tui chub minnow trolling flies. Brown and pumpkinseed grubs are doing well too. www.eaglelakefishing.net
