Private Water
Fly Fishing

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.

Best Day Ever

Guest Report from Dave who fished Eagle Canyon today:

"This was my 30th trip to ECL since it re-opened in 2010 and the best day so far. Water was clear and we had a slight ripple on the water most of the day. The fish were grabby, healthy and hot. Most fish were between 6 and 10 lbs. Stripping and indicator methods both worked. Scot and his nephew Will both had their best day here too. Eagle Canyon, a one of a kind fishery!!"

Opening Day Report

Opening Day 2021 was possibly the best opening day in the history of Eagle Canyon.  The fish are huge this year (well over 6 pounds on average), have great coloration and are in great condition.  They fight hard, jump, tail-walk, and just don't give up.  Our guests today did very well with beadhead woolly buggers fished on floating lines and 9ft 0X leaders.  No joke.  In a week these fish won't go near a 0X tippet, but it's working fine right now.  We had incredible weather and lush green scenery thanks to the rains in October and early November.  It looks like March at Eagle Canyon right now with green grass and snow on nearby Mt Lassen.  He still have 4 open dates in December - check our availability page and book your date soon!

Here is a report from Peter who fished Eagle Canyon today: "The water was murky and higher than normal due to the rains. Due to  the weather conditions, the fish seemed more finicky and timid on the  takes. We discovered that if we used a small nymph dropper behind a  wooly bugger, the fish were more willing to grab. The combination that  worked was a blood sucking leech with a black bird nest as a dropper.  Later in the day, we also caught fish on olive and red wooly buggers as  well as on micro mays underneath an indicator. Our fish count was 12 for  20. The biggest fish weighed was slightly over 14 lbs. Thanks again!"

 Here is a report from the group that fished Eagle Canyon today:

"On our annual return trip to the Eagle Canyon, we had another  great time chasing those huge rainbows that populate the two lakes. The  best bite took place from the time we arrived at 8:30 am to around 11:00  am. Both lakes were producing. The fish were taking leech patterns in  black or purple (size 6-10) and copper johns in sizes 10- 14 stripped in  slowly behind an intermediate line. The bite slowed down during midday  (perfect for our lunch break) but then picked up again in the evening.  Dark leech patterns and hares ear nymphs were the ticket during the  early evening bite. The fish caught yesterday ranged from 5-12 pounds  with several in the 7-9 pounds range. They were very fresh and put up a  very good battle when hooked. We look forward to another return  trip to Eagle Canyon in the future."

Here is a guest report from Dave who fished Eagle Canyon today:

Bite was good  with a little help from the wind but got tougher in calm periods.  Changing tactics throughout the day was key to staying in the zone. This  year has been great for fish over 10 pounds. ECL, one of a kind  fishery!!""

Fishing was pretty good at Eagle Canyon today.  I left early, but father/son duo Patrick and Sean had already hooked 2-3 fish each and landed some nice ones.  Action was best on copper johns, pheasant tails, and princes all in a size 14.  These were suspended about 18" below an indicator.  Open dates are vanishing quickly - get in touch soon to reserve your spot!
