SORRY FOR THE DELAYS IN THE REPORT FOLKS, BUT IT'S THE TIME OF YEAR i HAVE TO INSURE MY FOLKS HAVE FIREWOOD FOR THE WINTER AMONG SEVERAL OTHER THINGS. I WILL HAVE TO TAKE MORE TIME OFF TO GET THINGS DONE & FISH IN BETWEEN FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. THEN I WILL BE BACK TO CATCHING!!
10-19-14 Fishing Report Summary: The fishing has continued to be very good. Trolling 4-6ft deep has done well but we picked a few more up a little deeper at 12 to 15 ft deep as well, mostly over deeper water (35-59). This week I have mostly been trolling shallow rock piles on the west side between Christie & Wildcat Pt thru Lake of the Woods up to Slough Pt for the first couple hours then moving out to 35 to 49ft of water & finding fish there too. The fish move with the feed & not always in the same location day after day but mostly within a half mile or so. The trout are still pounding the bait fish but they are also working a fresh spawn of shrimp (zooplankton) suspended over the deeper water. The fish we are catching over the depths are healthy and fat and around 2lbs but most all our larger fish over 19-20+ inches & pushing and/or over 3lbs are coming out of the rock piles and shallow ledges. The fish are taking a lot of different baits and lures/flies/grubs. Location hasn't really mattered for catching. I have worked both sides & the upper end & had plenty of action releasing anywhere from 12 to 16 per morning.
We have run trolling flies on Jay Fair toplines and our leadcores with one color in the water with 50-60ft and sometimes up to 80ft just to get the distance from the boat. Flat water & mid morning days often require a further distance from the boat to get a fish to bite. Mid to late morning we have even dropped out up to 4 colors of leadcore this week (18-21ft deep at our rate of speed 2.2 to 2.8mph) and caught a couple trout as well as a tui chub. So the trout are scattered in the water column.
The east side between Camp Ronald McDonald and Eagles Nest is still holding a few trout but there have been more out towards the center of the lake which is holding quite a few adult tui chub too. The south side of Pelican Pt & the Youth Camp continue to hold a few fish but I don’t advise novices to attempt to navigate the waters in that area....those trout will come back when water temps drop a little more. But the shore fishermen using olive, brown & orange jigs are catching tons of trout. Cinnamon Leech, florescent orange are my best colors off Pelican, the tui chub minnow & cinnamon leech are my best trolling flies at the Youth Camp/Biology Station trough.
Red/prism needlefish, Sure Catch double jointed medium Red-dog, Rapala’s (orange, silver & gold), Trolling Flies: Jay Fair or Arctic Fox Tui Chub minnow, Florescent or Hot Orange, cinnamon leech, Arctic Fox Red Sided Sucker and Jay Fair’s All Around Best and Wiggle Tails. Over the depths it was all about florescent orange flies or a lure with a lot of action. I accentuate the bends Just a little on my needlefish which drives the fish crazy. Watermelon, orange & root beer grubs have been working. Run behind action discs over shallower water, behind dodgers over the depths. Almost anything is working for trollers.
Lake surface temps holding around 56-58F plus or minus depending on location. Some weeds drifting around on the surface but many locations have been very clean. Water is cloudy now that water temps are dropping but as we head deeper into fall, things are going to change up a little. Be prepared to use an attractant. Garlic flavors have long been a favorite on this lake all year long while other scents such as tui chub can be seasonal. This is the season that many different scents work. The use of bright colored trolling flies and lures will remain but we will all have to start leaving a scent trail to follow or make a little noise with sonic blades or beads to clack just to get a trout’s attention to look in our direction. The condition of the water will come into play when it comes to catching. Fortunately, this is temporary but can last several weeks.
With the lowering of the surface temps we can expect to see a substantial increase in the shrimp zooplankton this week and for the next several weeks. The trout will take most anything if the opportunity arises but they lay in the dense layer and filter feed…in other words, the don’t move fast if they don’t have or want to. Last season, even with surface temps as low as 52, a colder layer of water at 18ft suspended the zooplankton and most of the trout stayed out in the depths until mid November when our fish generally come in to pound minnows. But even the minnows remained out in the depths feeding on the massive blob of Jell-o suspended at that depth. At this point, shore fishing, fly fishing and float tubing are right on time. They were last year until conditions drove everything out into the depths.
The lake does this every year & all we have to do is adapt to keep catching fish. Trolling nightcrawlers has had its days & despite producing on some days, it hasn’t produced this season like it has in the past. When we have a lot of color in the water, dragging crawlers has traditionally done well this time of the season.
SOMETHING TO REMEMBER: Gold, brass, copper and nickel flash will be something to consider. Metal remains metal & flashy still flashes where as some colors wash out and become virtually invisible to any trout unless he’s within visually range….soon to be 7 ft. But until then, brown (black should also work, however I haven’t tried it yet) florescent orange continues to rule the water.
NIGHTCRAWLERS UNDER SLIP BOBBERS is not doing as well as using and tending a freeline and covering the upper part of the water column. I have recommended using a freeline now for the last couple of weeks. If I wanted to fish worms and anchor I would be free lining rather than fishing at one set depth. If I had to set a depth I would get my bait in the 15 to 18 ft range for the resting trout. Quite often we can see these lazy trout take a worm when they aren’t chasing a troller, and they can be some pretty nice fish if you can get them to bite. If the water is flat calm, I prefer to drift & let that freeline work its magic.
Best Locations by Boat: All in all, we have nice quality fish just about everywhere! Pikes Pt to Merrill Campground. Look for the grebes. The birds will be over the minnows & the minnows can be ½ mile from where you left them the day before. Make circles out from Pikes Pt to Pikes Cove & keep moving towards Merrill Campground…However, we will see an increase of the recently planted hatchery trout begin to move into this area…the larger trout move out & down or into Pikes Cove. Christie Day Use area is also holding a nice school of minnow chasing trout. Wildcat Pt & Lake of the Woods & Shrimp Island. Nasty rock piles, it safer out in the depths between 30 and 40+ ft & there are scattered pods of nice trout which appear to be increasing in numbers. Shrimp Island to Slough Pt is holding nice fish now.
Camp Ron McD to Eagles Nest thinned out but still a few trout to be had. We do have some adult tui chub moving around. If you start seeing fish on your scope below 40ft deep or blacken your screen, chances are they are not trout. The tui chub and trout school differently with very obvious differences. Target the top water and you won’t be disappointed. The east side generally holds fish all season long, but masses move in and out.
Fish moved north over and north of Miners Pt which is the most dangerous part of the lake. I only advise those who know the water to attempt passage as there are plenty of shallow shoals jutting out of 12 ft of water and no buoys. There are plenty of fish much closer but for those who do know the water here it is. We have a few fish off the south side of Pelican as well as the Youth Camp/Biology Station. We also have exposed and submerged rock piles of which I gracefully but unintentionally parked my boat on briefly early last week…..but we caught the heck out of the trout along the drop-off once I figured out the shape of the Plateau again!! Brown, orange and yellow trolling flies. Visual clarity 3 to 4 ft. Fish will remain off the YC/BS until surface temps drop below 50F… Should be good till early November.
TIPS FOR LEADCORE TROLLERS: I zig-zag and troll in circles out away from the ledges (Reason for zigzags & circles: Making my line work a column of water rather than just one depth as well as changes the action of the lures). I also work the contours of the bottom in shallow water using the same technique. As you make a turn, the inside line drops several feet and flutters down (when a clip is used, action is different when tied directly on the line) while the outside line picks up speed and comes up several feet in depth. Depending on my speed, that column of water I’m working can be up to 15 ft. For leadcore users, I have never had to go deeper than 6 colors. I only put 5-6 colors on my reels & backing to the reel. The sink rate of leadcore depends on your trolling speed and lure weight. I can easily hang up on the bottom at 42ft with 5 colors in the water at 1.2 to 1.3 mph and hang up one color in 12-14ft at the same low speed. If you don’t have a trolling speed indicator. Most Smartphone GPS apps have speed on them. Our fish can get directional for trollers so I always troll in circles, east to west, west to east, north to south and south to north. Generally I find the “direction of the day (or hour in some cases) & work it until I wear it out.
For leadcore line, I only use 18lb as it is more controllable for depth and easier to splice over time and catching bottom a lot. Suffix brand is tough as it gets, but isn’t user friendly for inline splicing, especially in the field, but using a long sewing needle helps greatly for threading the leader and backing into the Dacron sheath of the leadcore). Also, I use “fire line” for my backing for many reasons but toughness and diameter are key factors, floating properties are another.
Leadcore users: We have come up to topline level. To run your leadcore like I do a topline you simply have to add 50 to 75 ft or more of leader & run one color in the water (that can be 1 ½ to 1 ¾ colors off your reel & depending on your speed.) I run four lines, The two outside lines are Jay Fair toplines & my inside lines are my leadcores. Running my leadcores shorter allows me to make sharper turns without having my lines cross over each other. You need to be at least 100ft behind the boat to successfully catch a lot of trout near the surface and on a spooky day we have ended up 150ft behind the boat to get them to bite. Average trolling speed for us this week was 2.2 to 2.7 mph .
TIPS FOR DOWNRIGGER USERS: To successfully troll a trolling fly from a down rigger you need to put your line a little deeper into the clip so it takes more effort for the fish to pop off. The key to hooking fish on a fly is setting the hook instantly & don’t allow any slack in the line bringing him in. If you don’t sink the hook, you haven’t sunk the barb in his lip. Rod unloading picks up a little of the slack in the belly of the line but not always enough to solidly sink the barb. If there is one complaint I hear from downrigger users trolling flies, it is that they can’t get that many fish to the boat before they spit the hook. It only takes a little change up to stick the fish solidly. Also, don’t continue to troll. On flies, typically you only hook the fish in the lip or by the skin of the lip. Dragging the fish while reeling it in helps tear the skin & open a hole for the hook to slip out of. Been there, done that.
For those who want to make the drive in, the Youth Camp / Biology Station is holding a lot of nice fish now. Pikes Pt has been holding some nice trout and the recently planted trout don’t appear to have rounded the corner towards Pikes Cove just yet. But there have been some very nice limits up to 3lb 11oz caught from shore there this week. Casting red/nickel cast-masters and small spinners have also caught some nice fish there. They are moving with the minnows & the grebes and pelicans will show you where they are. Christie Day Use (the rocky point looking left from the parking lot), Camp Ronald McDonald and the Circus Grounds found some action as well. Now that water temps are cooling down, we will see shore fishing, fly fishing and float tubing turn on for the rest of the season unless we see similar conditions as last fall which kept the trout out over the depths until mid Nov. I have been working the shoreline from Christie to north of Wildcat Point and finding great early action close to shore. If you are coming up to fly fish by wading first, I can’t tell you how important it is to fish the water before you step into it. When I could wade, I would stand back 20-30 ft (as closer will move the fish away) flip out several double-hauls & land my fly 3 to 5 ft from the edge of the shore. I have caught my largest fish doing that. Now, since I can’t walk well, I use my float tube & I cast as close to the shoreline as possible & shoot for 3 to 5 ft from land…..Friday morning I caught and released 3 trout (that were the larger 20-23 inchers) doing that before sunrise.
Nightcrawlers or powerbait….or nightcrawlers and powerbait work very well from shore and are probably the two best baits to consider using. Casting small jigs is also a top producing method of catching fish from shore. Brown, olive and black are the basics, but wild turkey (darker grey) has been #1 for decades for the jig tiers. Yellow and white turn on later in November and can be the ticket in December. For longer casts use weighted or water filled bobbers. We not only do that but also use longer rods 8-8 ½ ft long for extra distance. In some of the accessible areas of the lake, it can be critical to get distance, especially later in the morning or in the afternoon when the trout move out….mostly just out of reach from shore with normal tackle & rods shorter than 6 ½ ft long. FYI on that. The jigs we use are much smaller than the traditional crappy jigs, however in a pinch, they can work ok. The small jigs are available locally, Susanville Chester among other sporting goods stores.
Bobbers VS bottom fishing: It is possible to fish from the bottom up. Use an egg singer rather than split-shot so when a touchy trout picks up your inflated crawler or floating dough bait (powerbait) there is less resistance. We have a lot of areas of soft mud, sand and weed beds that make it easy to slowly retrieve that line. We also have more rocky ledges and gravel bars that hang up a sinker & slow retrieves make that worse. If you are bottom fishing around rocks & bring your line in, bring it in fast to keep your singer above the rocky bottom. Depending on conditions of the day (wind especially) and the location I am shore fishing, I often set up a deep running bobber and let my weight rest on the bottom (bobber on its side or tipped) & float my bait up from that. This way, the bobber helps keep the line “up” & I still crank in fast…..but I don’t lose a lot of tackle anymore having put these techniques into practice.
FLOAT TUBERS YAKERS & FLY FISHING:
If you aren’t ready by now, you should be! At this time I am still doing more hybrid type fly fishing from my tube, however I have been casting and stripping my main rod & having very good success. If you want to consistently catch fish from a personal fishing craft on Eagle Lake, you have to be willing to tweak your methods to some degree. Not everyone has a customized float tube like I do, but I have been tubing and fly fishing this lake for several decades. My tube is simply my mini boat. Since I have a two rod stamp, I can run two rods off my tube. One rod gets locked into the rod holder & is “trolling” while I cast, twitch, strip with the other line. I always have my line lightly pinched between my fingers and seldom with any line weight on the rod. In essence, like playing with a cat and a string. Straight line hook ups are my favorite tease. I don’t always run two rods at the same time & if I hook a fish on one, the other rod comes out of the water asap to prevent double hook ups & line crosses.
We still have to access some deeper water if you want to catch and release longer and into the afternoon if the wind hasn’t blown you off. But, please note that you can’t have retained your limit and continue to catch and release. Some days the minnows are nowhere to be seen along the shoreline, but the trout are cruising the rocks & looking for other food sources such as shrimp, leeches, toebiters, back swimmers, scuds & other critters. I have been running dark brown leeches & mini tui chub patterns which have produced good numbers of larger rouge trout. There have been days I have had to cover some water but it was worth the effort.
Even though the minnows are the trout’s main fatty food source for winter, the trout have a taste for other critters that naturally occur in the lake. Since July the trout have been pounding the minnows & it has depended on where the minnows are each day for good trout fishing. It isn’t unusual to find our trout get tired of eating the same thing and move onto a different source (as long as it is as easy to get). Our trout are migratory by nature & they like changes in foods and scenery. The trout don’t stop eating minnows, but they do start eating other things as well. Cooler water temps arrived, solstice has passed, a shrimp spawn starting & we have more larger trout in close & on the move checking things out.
We could see another year that the lake holds in a freeze frame before settling into late fall/winter mode so to speak, and a cold layer of water could suspend this zooplankton out in the depths which kept nearly every species and size of fish in the lake away from shore until mid to late November when the thermalcline disappeared. So for now, tubing, yaking & shore fishing is quite capable of producing nice limits. Val’s Eagle Lake Leech Selection pack: Black/red, brown & rust bead heads as well as small minnow patterns are working best for me. Orange scuds will be turning on in the next week or two, depending on water temps. I fish the lake as long as possible, the only thing that stops me is ice on the surface, not the temperatures (my propane heater mounted to my tube takes care of that).
FLY FISHING/FLOAT TUBING BASICS: #12 & #10 Nymphs. Orange, brown and olive for spring. From my float tube I prefer using a sink tip…10ft medium sink (3 to 4” per/second). This line allows me to cast into shore or on top of a shallow rock pile and work the contours down. I can sink it to 15ft deep if needed or ride the upper 1ft of the water column. For wading, I use my full floating line & use double wire hooks or bead-head nymphs/leeches to get the depth needed to work the rock pile up. Come fall/winter months my spring arsenal is still in my go to compartment but I add some olive/white minnow imitations, orange & light olive scuds (water temps dropping) and some oddball wooly buggers. Some days I need a little flashier body while other days my “plain Jane” drab olive or brown are the ticket. The new UV material is proving itself in browns, black and darker olive colors. It depends on the sky, water color and temperature but the new UV dubbing makes a beautiful fly. As the water begins to warm up to around 65F on the surface, I have been known to use #16 to #22 olive or dark brown midges under indicators. For the most part, if I use an indicator I use a plastic bubble type like thingamabobbers. I poke a small hole in the top & fill it with water which keeps a neutral buoyancy & still rides on the surface. I prefer the loop attachment of the thingamabobbers over winding around an O-ring or threading. It’s easy to put on and stays in place as well as being easy to remove with no tippet damage. In big waves, the water fill method flows smoothly and with the water it also adds some weight for casting when the wind comes up. Whereas the high riding air bobber or Styrofoam jumps around with not only the wave action but the wind as well. If that’s what you want, by all means use your preference. All I do is tell you why I do or don’t use a certain product. Regardless, it’s really only a matter of control. As a rule, I really don’t care for “bobber fishing” & calling it fly fishing. But you can catch a lot of fish if that’s what you like to do but it’s not as much fun for me as teasing a trout into a strike. I don’t really care about reeling in a fish, it’s all about the tease and the strike while holding my line!!!
In my tube I keep on the move & keep the casts towards shore going, even though I may not leave the area I am fishing, I am making circles in my tube just as I would in my boat. It’s more about a Hybrid form of fly fishing that incorporates all the casting and stripping techniques as well as some trolling methods. If you run a full floating line from a tube you often need a heavier fly, it’s the nature of the beast unless you anchor, you drift faster than you think. I have specific lengths of leadcore line that I loop onto my floater to make it a sink tip if I need a quick conversion. I have never liked using full sinking lines. No matter what, the full sink lines have a large belly form between rod and fly. Our trout are such gentle slurper’s that by the time the fish pulls the belly out of the line enough for you to see or feel on the rod, it’s too late to set the hook, the fish is gone. If you sink your floating line down from the top of the water, the body of the line remains on the surface which allows you to use the line as an indicator & you will catch more fish than you even knew were biting at you. Uniform sinking lines do just that, sink. No matter what the advertisements say, the uniform sinking line has a droop or belly to it under the water. NOTE: RETIE YOUR FLY AFTER EVERY TWO FISH OR NUMBER THREE FISH WILL STEAL IT FROM YOU….just trust me on that!! Also, keep your hooks sharp…I sharpen hooks after every other fish and keep my sharpener close by at all times.
The beauty of fishing Eagle Lake is that it changes with the seasons and our trout migrate around the lake. Food sources intermingle but there are differences in the west side and east side. The trout will remain in the depths for a while longer but they will be active higher in the water column now. On a hot flat water afternoon we might find a few between 18 and 21 ft deep but the best catching will be in the upper 10ft of the water column. Only rouge trout will venture into the shoreline while surface temps are warm but once we see surface temps drop to 65F and below we will see some major changes occur. At 61-60F visibility will go out the door and attractants will become relatively necessary. Avoid setting anchor over a mass of fish that drop below 47ft deep….chances are they are tui chub, not trout.
GENERAL TIPS FOR TROLLING
FOR THE LURES we use a loop knot or a small clip to attach the lures which seems to give it more action in the water during speed changes and especially on turns (where 80% of your fish will come from). I prefer black small spring steel clips over snap clips & I haven’t lost a lure or fish yet, As a tip, the heavier hooks on many of the lures need sharpened after every two fish. If you keep getting strikes without getting a fish to the boat, chances are your hook is dull….been there & done that. Sharp hooks catch more fish. I always like to say, “Mr Sneaky Trout, meet Mr Sharp Hook and try that again!”. It can mean all the difference between fishing and catching those light biting trout. It’s critical on my float tube fly fishing.
Action discs help give the flies and grubs movement if you aren’t holding your rod & working the marabou, hair or plastic yourself. I personally prefer the smaller action disc because of the heavy drag of the discs to begin with. AND I run it close to the fly or grub rather than 3” or more above. The further up the line from the fly the action disc is, the further it travels laterally. Oh it has nice movement but it can also foul other lines if it travels too far. I run the smaller disc right ahead of the fly…it gives it a subtle wiggle rather than a rapid twitch which is often needed on flat water. When the bite comes back on again, chances are what worked earlier will work again. I have found that there are some days that you can have too much movement in a lure or fly and a plain old dead drag or seductive wiggle is what gets the strikes. There is a new action disc in development which should out next season. We will be testing the new ones very soon.
Attractants can help, especially as we head into fall and our clarity decreases. Garlic has traditionally been good, krill second, trout gravy third and tui chub scent should be on your list now that the tui chub minnow are on the menu big time. Mikes Lunker Lotion’s are proving to do quite well. Tui Chub flavors are also good this time of year. I don’t always use an attractant on every bait or lure in the water just in case I have a day that it becomes a repellent. In that case, I use rubber or vinyl gloves to handle my bait…thus keeping my scent off the worm to begin with. FYI on that. Also note that attractants can go bad or sour if left in the sun or heat for long periods. I generally store mine in the refrigerator (ice chest but put in ziplock baggie) or at least in a cool dark spot when I store it for the day.
GENERAL LAKE FAVORITES
Bait fishing. NO MINNOWS ARE ALLOWED TO BE USED AS BAIT IN EAGLE LAKE. INCLUDING MINNOWS CAUGHT IN THE LAKE. I can guarantee you that if you bring a bucket of minnows up from the valley to use as bait, you will be found out and turned in. Will the imported minnows live in Eagle Lake? Well, let’s just say that we certainly don’t want to find out as if they did survive and reproduce the entire balance of the lake will change and it will no longer be the lake it is. It could ruin the lake as we know it….forever. So NO Minnows!!!!
If I went bait fishing from an anchored boat right now I would tend to hit shallow water. Keep my line up around 3 to 4 ft from the surface.
It is not unusual to find a nice lazy trout at 30ft deep off the east side between The Springs and Black Mt at any time of the fishing season. The fish that reside at that depth are generally fat and lazy & make you find them, rather than just swim by your bait in fall. They don’t always chase trollers at that depth, but they have been known to take that nice juicy nightcrawler that just sits there wiggling. Attractants can help, but don’t put it on every bait in the water until you know it’s working better than not using it. We have trout off Wildcat all the way up the west side and holding in mostly shallower water early in the morning….but they are moving back out later in AM.
There are several options for bait. Nightcrawlers (threaded on the hook) are probably the best bait going. I prefer to have some mini crawlers handy as sometimes these trout don’t want a meal but just a snack….small over large has always been better. Powerbait type products I refer to as dough baits have also worked well on our hatchery trout. Rainbow probably covers the most popular colors of orange, pink/red and green but the pale garlic flavor has really done well since hitting the market. Our trout don’t generally look at salmon eggs but they have looked at marshmallows. Various attractants are also advisable, Pro Cure has a good selection. Garlic is a favorite and most anything for trout. But, tui chub flavor of attractant won’t do as well until late summer when the trout begin pounding the fresh hatch of tui chub minnows. We don’t recommend releasing fish that swallowed the hook. It is not like the days of the past when hooks were made out of cheap steel. Now hooks are all high carbon steel and lazar or chemically sharpened. These hooks cut a hole in the fishes stomach much easier and don’t rust out as fast. The fish I have cleaned that have survived have massive scar tissue around their stomachs and in generally poor health despite surviving.
