Eagle River Report

April 13, 2021


FLOW: 123.0 cfs (Avon Water Treatment Plant)



FOOD SOURCES PRESENT: Midges, BWO, Beatis, Stone Flies


THE LOW DOWN:  Water levels are still on the rise! Add some weight to your Nymph rigs to get down and stay down in the strike zone. Still seeing sporadic hatches of BWOs and Midges throughout the day, so keep an eye out in the tail outs for rising fish. Don't forget to keep em wet!


Appropriate Patterns  

DRIES: Para Adams 18-22, Stacker BWO 18-22, Griffith Gnat 18-22, Olive Biot 20-22


NYMPHS:  Hare’s Ear 14-16, Copper John 14-18, Pheasant Tail 14-18, Jiggy JJ Beatis 18-20, RS2 20-24, WD-40 20-24, Black Beauty 20-24, JuJu Beatis, Trailing Shuck Midge 20-22


STREAMERS: Slump Buster 6-8, Wooley Bugger 4-10, Double Thin Mint 4-8


HINTS: With the rising water levels will “dirty” the water a bit.  Now we can use heavier tippet and larger bugs.  Heavier tippet helps with us getting the fish in quickly.  Larger lead bugs help grab attention of the fish with all the other stuff floating down the river.
