Eagle River Report

June 15th, 2021


FLOW: 858.0 cfs (Avon Water Treatment Plant)





THE LOW DOWN: Water is coming down and fish are starting to spread out a bit. The farther west you go the water starts turning off color, that being said with the off color water, use Girdle bugs or big attractors to grab the attention of the fish. Still fishing the banks and pockets next to the faster water Using Caddis, midges, baetis, and BWO patterns on a nymph rig seems to be what is producing. We will soon be seeing a lot more caddis and will be able to throw drys more and more as the warm weather continues.. If the bite has been getting slow try adding more weight and shorten up that indicator, helps that rig get deeper faster..


Appropriate Patterns  

DRIES: Para Adams 18-22, Stacker BWO 18-22, Elk Hair Caddis 14-18

HINTS: Warmer days have been showing more hatching midges.. If the fish aren't eating deeper, shallow up those nymph rigs and see if they're suspended.
