Pretty Much A Solid Bite on Eagle Lake Right Now

Eagle Lake - Susanville, CA (Lassen County)

by Valerie Aubrey

Eagle is fishing pretty good. Still a lot of particulate algae’s in the water column in the south basin. Water temps in the mid to high 50’s. Trout moving around but staying high in the water column for us. Orange (red dog, red-prism needlefish, rainbow runners), rainbow trout (rapalas & flicker shad), black, red/gold. Also hot orange,olive, peacock, & cinnamon leech trolling flies. Pretty much a solid bite. The algae can throw them off. Look for cleaner water & find the fish. Miners pt rock pile & up the channel towards the Youth Camp is holding more every day. Predicted to get a cold front & single digits in a few days & we will see some change!!! Woohoo!!
