TRIP SUMMARY

I love the Eagle river come fall. As of now we are (finally) seeing some colder nights that have brought the eagle back in the right direction. I would not say it is in full swing for the true fall fishing it is capable of, but we are certainly heading in the right direction. Most ideal conditions seem to be mild temperatures mid day with some cloud cover to take the pressure off. Tricos can have had some truly productive days depending on conditions. When trout feed on tricos they get extremely selective. Make sure to carry some smaller (#20-24) trico dry patterns with you at all times this time of year. If they are not eating tricos I found success on attractor patterns - Leeches, worms and caddis emergers, as well as tiny midges in neutral colors. Any of these attractors followed by a midge pattern under an indicator (with the right amount of weight added!) will sure find you some success on the Eagle right now.
