Eagle Canyon tips n tricks & hot flies

Using the proper tactics and having the right gear and flies will make or break your trip to Eagle Canyon.  If you just bring woolly buggers and a few nymphs you're probably not going to catch very many fish.
These fish are not stupid, know that. 
 
These trout can be more picky than a 9 year old at dinnertime. Morning time until around 11am use loud bright flashy streamers on 1, 2 or 3X *fluorocarbon*- preferably zonkers and leech-like flies. **Chartreuse **/white/black/ have been the key colors for most the season. Around noon every day, you'll have to switch gears and go longer & lighter leader with small flies, or go indicator- 4 & 5X. 
Don't use the same retrieve all day long! Big flies fast(er) retrieve, small flies- slow retrieve or indicator fish. 
 
Lately the hot flies have been egg patterns in all colors especially glo-ro and oregon cheese, tangerine & pink. Black,white and chartreuse zonkers got the most hits in the morning & evening. 
There has been some good hatches of callibaetis & march browns.
