Homestake Creek

Homestake Creek is one of the main tributaries into the Eagle River. Homestake is our closest tailwater and is very accessible to even the most inexperienced angler. It is full of brook, brown, and rainbow trout.

Homestake Creek Colorado

Report Date: August 18th, 2017

Homestake is low and clear but the stealthy angler will produce. Fish the larger stretches of the river (the first bridge up to a mile in) and avoid the smaller dammed stretches.

Nymphing caddis larva and pupa will produce the most fish and streamer fishing with olive slump busters will provide the most action. Dry/dropper rigs in the riffles in the middle of the day will prove fruitful as they stack in the more oxygenated water.

The further you walk at Homestake, the better your chances of fishing unpressured water so bring your wet wading socks and a bottle of water and plan on covering some ground.

Avoid the private water at all times!
