Colorado Stream Update: The Eagle has been fishing well!

Current Conditions at Eagle:

As we move towards Fall the streamer bite has been picking up on the Eagle! Fish are being found both above and below the surface. Target areas such as soft seams, shelves and foam lines. As always, depth is the most important factor when presenting a nymph rig. Patterns like; Princes, worms, girdles, 20-inchers, and larger caddis offerings are all good places to start. Two-bits, RS2's and JuJu's are finding fish as well. There are opportunities for surface action with the right conditions. Look for fish on the banks and in back-eddy's. Fish have been found on the old faithfuls suchs as Adams and elk hairs.

The crowds have been managable  This is one of the best times of year to be on the water!  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear.
