Welcome to the fly-fishing-only world of Eagle Canyon.
Our exclusive waters offer unsurpassed private angling for rainbows that consistently rank as California's largest.
Approximately 20 miles from Red Bluff, California, our spring-fed stillwaters are located in the foothills west of Lassen National Park.
Trophy rainbows from 4 to 15 pounds inhabit these intimate ponds and flourish in the fertile 55-degree habitat.
It's a perfect home for trophy trout.

Remember to book early! Our season is short, we limit the number of guests, and our regular guests book their trips well in advance!
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.

Here is a guest report from Jim who fished Eagle Canyon yesterday:
"Andrew, it was a beautiful day yesterday. As always Bill was very helpful and had his selection of his great flies which we used. Black, olive and purple leeches and buggers were the ticket. These are a few of the fish we caught. Needless to say we'll be back again. Thanks again, Jim"

Here is a guest report from Dave who fished Eagle Canyon today:
"A bit of breeze and some overcast made for ideal conditions. Fish were fairly co-operative throughout the day but changing tactics was essential to keep the bite strong.
Landed some in the 12 pound range."
Here is a report from Peter who fished Eagle Canyon today:
"This trip was more difficult than all of our previous trips in the past. We had to change flies a lot and the normal black wooly buggers, copper johns, and midges did not produce. I don’t think we got a strike or landed a fish until the afternoon. Thankfully, we landed 5 fish by the end of the day. Three in the large pond and two in the small pond. The flies that produced the fish were purple, maroon, and olive wooly buggers. Thank you again."
Here is a fishing report from Rocky who fished Eagle Canyon today:
"We had a great day at the ponds. The weather could not have been more beautiful, but as a result, we had to work harder for our fish. Absolutely still water with fish changing what they ate all day. Most productive flies were olive sealbuggers and size 20 midge patterns. Average size was way up compared to last year, at least for us. Thanks again for a great day. It's my favorite way to welcome in the new year. Best part was the incredible sunset we were treated to on the way out. Wow! See you next year."
