Fishing on the Eagle river these days has been good. How good? Check out Minturn Anglers guide Scott Thompson as he sticks some goodness on the dry in a single take.
Most of the great action happens from noon until 4pm on warm days. Fish are eating large midge larvae and pupa (#14,#16) on a nymph indicator rig. Top patterns include: #14 Guides Choice Hares Ear, Midge Bombs #16, 18 Red and Black, Tube Midge #14, 16, 18, (Black and Red), Tung Midge Olive #14, #16, red annelid #20, San Juan Worms (Pink, and Brown)
