Colorado Stream Update: Eagle is on the rise.

Current Conditions at Eagle:

Runoff has hit the vail valley. We are starting to see lots of water pump through the Eagle. Higher flows mean float season for you experienced oarsmen. During the high water use caution but enjoy the fishing. There is still plenty of fish to be caught close to shore. This is my favorite time to throw those big streamers.

The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Stained.
