Getting “Mooned” on the Eagle River – Duane Redford

“I’ve been mooned!” So, there I was, minding my own business, going about my daily guided trips on the Eagle River, and having a blast. The fishing was great, predictable, and steady. Then I was mooned… Not sure how to explain it, but the day after our last full moon, the bottom fell out of the river. There was a futile hatch at best, and not one brown trout was brought to the net. Areas Read More

Fishing Report: Eagle River

7/1/2014 Fishing Report–The Eagle River is starting to fish like a “normal” trout stream. The fish are starting to key in on smaller bugs more, and pay less attention to the worm. In weeks earlier, the worm was the ticket; and tippet was not an issue. As of late, we are having to go to 4x and 5x to fool them. Get ready for the technical trout stream that the Eagle can be. Fishing has Read More

Eagle River Float Season/ Vail Valley Dry Fly Mania

Streamflows Dropping 6-28-2014 After an agonizingly long run off, it looks like THE Eagle River is ready to float. This is a special time of year for us here at Minturn Anglers that we all look forward to: dry fly season, happy time. As flows drop closer to 1000 cfs and the water temperature starts to live in the mid 50’s our favorite freestone begins to purge prolific hatches of Caddis flies. This all neatly Read More

14263-Eagle River-Eagle Vail-Edwards-Andrew Smith

  6-27-2014 Mid-Valley below Vail, Colorado continues to improve as the waters recede. The Eagle River is easily divided into three basic sections: the high country (above Minturn), mid-valley (from the Gore Creek confluence down to Wolcott), and downvalley (Wolcott to the confluence with the Colorado River). The last two days I have been focusing on the mid valley stretch and have found a considerable improvement from a week ago: run off is slowing bringing Read More

Eagle River Fishing Report | Downvalley: Wolcott to Gypsum

6/24/2014–The Eagle River is improving daily downvalley.  Clarity and temperature are excellent, and flows are coming down.  Wading is still unsafe in many areas, but trout are holding near the banks and responding eagerly to high-water patterns. Eagle River Fishing Report–Downvalley: Wolcott to Gypsum The Eagle River is one of Colorado’s gems, especially just as the meltwater recedes.  The key is to find holding water and avoid the main current,  just as the fish do.  The Read More

Feeding fish in freezing weather Regardless of the weather, the water temps are ideal in the right areas With football on TV and temps below 20 degrees, a few of us decided to brave the elements and fish The Eagle River knowing full well that we would be the only hearty (or dumb) fishermen out there.
