Guest Report from Dave from Grass Valley:
Today was pretty good, not easy but decent for a bright, sunny, calm day. Fish are all super hot and healthy but most takes are subtle. The fish in the photo ate a red "zugger" on the drop.

Here are some photos from the Deep Creek Fly Fishers day at Eagle Canyon. They had a really good day with most fisherman landing 3-5 fish and some landing over 10.
Long-time guest Dave forwarded these two photos from Friday. He said the fishing was good and he even had a couple of fish over 10 pounds. Sounds like fun!
January 25: Tough conditions
We've had some tough fishing here these last couple weeks. Seems mother nature is letting us know she's still there. Windy & rainy conditions has been making things challenging. There was even a tornado warning issued in the Eagle Canyon area the same time a group of 4 was on the water.
The anglers that do the best I've seen are the ones willing to cover a lot of water and can present the fly in a somewhat delicate manner.
Normally 3x Flouro will suffice in the morning, but 5x will most likely be needed by the afternoon.
Flies that have been working are; (sizes 12-18)
- red copper johns
- olive micro mays
- prince nymphs
- hares ears
- beaded olive, black, purple, crystal wooly buggers
This is a report from guest Will who fished Eagle Canyon on Tuesday:
We had a great time yesterday despite the rain and wind during the first
half of the day. Everyone picked up fish and the weather cleared up
during the latter part of the day. I had about a dozen fish on and
landed about half of them. Sam was great with giving us tips, providing
hot and cold drinks and assisting with the net. We will try to return
again next year.
