Eagle Lake-Now Booking Fall Trips!

Eagle Lake has become my favorite still water destination and has earned its reputation as the best rainbow fishery in California. Eagle's scenic beauty combined with numbers of quality trophy sized rainbows makes it the premier natural lake fishery in the state. The fall trip will take place from September 21st through October 16th. You are invited to join me up at Eagle for some truly memorable fishing. Please click on Sierra Drifters Eagle Lake Webpage for details and booking information.

My friends at Eagle tell me the bite has not stopped since we left this spring and that the water conditions are great. The South Basin and the narrows around Pelican Pt. are still fishing well with solid hatches of caddis, callibaetis, jumbo chironomids, and damsel flies. September will bring schools of chubs migrating into the shallows and the big rainbows will chase them into short water. It is very much like bone fishing for trout in the fall here as we focus on the shallow water structure. I can't wait, hope you can make up!
