I spent a couple of hours at Eagle Canyon today.  The water is a bit off-color with about 2 feet of visibility.  The fish aren't having any trouble seeing the flies, though!  We had a really good baetis hatch today, about a size 16.  I saw a couple fish working the dries in the shallows at the top end of the small pond.  I had good luck on a variety of nymphs, including glo bugs, micro spawn, copper johns, S&M Nymphs, Poxyback PMDs, and baetis nymphs.  A tried-and-true rig is two nymphs under a small corkie indicator.  Space them out about 18" apart with the top fly 18" under the indicator.  Periodically lift your rod and chug the indicator across the surface about 3 feet at a time.  That gets the fish's attention.  Most of the strikes come right after you drag the indicator.

Testimonial by Bob Williams from Bakersfield, CA

Great 2 days fishing. Smallest trout was 4 lbs - what a deal! And good numbers, too.
