February 17: Project Healing Waters at Eagle Canyon
We were pleased to host the Shasta/Trinity chapter of Project Healing Waters at Eagle Canyon today. This is a great group of veterans and they have a dedicated support staff of volunteers. This was the 3rd year that we have hosted this group and they always bring great weather with them! Fishing was good and our guests landed many 5 to 10 pound fish today. The program participants spend a lot of time tying flies and practicing casting and it really pays off when they have a chance to get out on the water. We hope to see this group again next year at Eagle Canyon
February 16: Awesome sight-fishing & dry-fly opportunities!
Prime conditions right now at Eagle Canyon. We've been having mid-day Callibaetis hatches which the fish absolutely love.
We've had everyone from complete beginners to charter fishing guides land steelhead sized trout.
Bring streamers in chartreuse, white, black, pink as well as midges, prince-nymphs, micro-may's (olive & black) and sucker-spawn (yellow/Oregon-cheese). When your casting arm gets tired switch to a dry-dropper rig or small indicator with 2 or 3 small flies. Leave the sink-tips at home, floating lines work best here.
February 16: View all remaining open date
We have very few remaining open dates for the 2015 season.
The following dates are good for groups of 2 to 8 anglers:
March 3, 12, 31
April 6, 10, 14-15
March 10th has 2 open spaces. Right now that's the only date for a single angler to join another group.
We had 3 guests at Eagle Canyon today. They caught good numbers of fish despite high winds. Melanie from Cottonwood caught the biggest rainbow trout of her life today!
