TRIP SUMMARY

Fishing was good today! Although we had a bit of a slower morning trying to figure out what the fish were willing to eat after a significant bump in flows, we eventually found the key and were able to be pretty productive. With flows more than doubling overnight we switched from primarily small bugs to larger calorie flies. Worms and leeches were the most productive of the day although we still had a couple strikes on wd-40s and chocolate foam backs. Weather was mostly sunny but a strong afternoon wind kept temperatures lower. With the higher flows we saw a max water temp of 60 degrees which is good considering we were getting over 70 just a few weeks prior. The Eagle has been fishing excellent recently and now that the fish have had a chance to adjust to the quicker current I think it will continue to be a great choice for a day on the water.
