One of our most popular options is to combine a day at Eagle Canyon with a day of guided fishing the Lower Sacramento River.
Confluence Outfitters has one of the best guide teams in Northern California.
Our guides are experts on the Lower Sac from Redding to Red Bluff.
The 2-day combo trip is popular throughout our season at Eagle Canyon, especially for groups of 4 to 8 anglers.

We had a great group up from the Chico area to fish the opening day of Eagle Canyon. Skill levels ranged from beginner to experienced and all the anglers in the group had a great day. We caught fish on dry/dropper rigs, floating lines with wooly bugger type patterns and stripping leech patterns on intermediate sink lines. Many fish in the 8-14 pound range were caught and gently released. Many hooks were bent straight. Many smiles and high fives were exchanged. If you haven't made it up to Eagle Canyon yet, come check it out! This group estimated they caught at least 70 fish! This group is already eager to place the winning bid on next year's Opening Day trip.
Eagle canyon report by DJ Spivey
I recently had the chance to fish a few days up on a eagle canyon with a great group of guys. With harsh weather rolling through Northern California we decided to head east out of red bluff up to the Eagle canyon lakes. Starting off strong on smaller Woolley bugger patterns we stripped up some huge fish! Both days we picked up fish on streamers, indicator rigs and dry dropper set ups. If your looking to have a shot at some big rainbow trout eagle canyon is definitely a spot to check out!
Regular guest Tony from Red Bluff says: "The Eagle Canyon experience is truly a one of a kind fly fishing event. Great times and great memories complimented with extraordinary fishing. Everyone in our group hooked fish. All in all we had 25+ fish peeling line off our reels and we landed about 17 fish that can only be described as Jurassic in nature. Eagle Canyon is truly a spectacular experience to any fishing enthusiast."
Regular guest Dave had this to say about Eagle Canyon today: "We had a fine day at Eagle Canyon today. Fish were feisty and grabby most of the day. "

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."
Every year the Kern River Fly Fishers come up to spend a couple days on Eagle Canyon and a couple days on the Lower Sac with our guides. The group leader had the following to say about this year's trip: "Had a great time this week. The lake fished well and Brian, Luke & Kevin were absolutely wonderful. Looking forward to next year."
Guest Report from Carl who fished Eagle Canyon today:
"It was a fun day at Eagle Canyon. The fishing was good. The bites were steady and we all brought fish to the net. Best flies for us were white streamers and a rust colored wiggle tail."
