Jun 28 FlyCast River Forecast

Difficulty: Intermediate

Declining flows, mild weather and increased bug life have led to some great days on the Eagle. Trout here are feeding consistently throughout the day and are not terribly selective. Were seeing some new hatches take place so come prepared to fish some dries. PMDs and yellow sallies are now on the menu, but were still seeing caddis and midges emerge sporadically throughout the day. The dry dropper has been particularly effective as of late. Hit the banks and slow water with a Chubby Chernobyl, Amys Ant or Hippie Stomper followed by 18 to 24 inches of tippet and one or more smaller attractor nymphs for the best results. Otherwise, nymphing and streamer fishing has been productive as well. When fishing streamers, hit the banks hard and dont be afraid to make some waves. When nymphing, youre going to want to lead with bigger bugs like a leech, stonefly or attractor/searcher nymph followed by one or more smaller imitative patterns in the caddis, midge or baetis variety.
