Eagle River Report - Mar 2, 2021
March 2, 2021
FLOW: 76.0 cfs (Avon Water Treatment Plant)
WATER CONDITIONS: Clear
FOOD SOURCES PRESENT: Midges and… Midges.
THE LOW DOWN: Recently we have been seeing warmer temperatures, more movement from fish and finally some more open water! Using small midges and baetis patterns on a nymph rig seems to be the choice for the Eagle. If the bite has been getting slow fishing in the deeper runs try to move into the shallower water..
DRIES: Para Adams 18-22, Stacker BWO 18-22, Griffith Gnat 18-22
NYMPHS: Zebra Midge olive/black 18-22, Pheasant Tails 14-20, Rainbow Warrior 16-20, JuJu midge 18-22,Two Bit Hooker 18-22, Barr Emerger 16-20, Copper John red and copper sz 18, Flash Egg 18.
STREAMERS: Thin Mint, Motor Oil, Natural Sculpin, Baby Gongas
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.
