For anyone headed up that way, a friend just came back from a three day trip to Eagle Lake and reported the fishing is slow.

He caught eight fish in the 10 - 12 inch range over three days.

Thonzberry,

Eagle Lake is located in the high country near Susanville, in Northeast Calif.

Would be quite a drive for you but if you wanted to come up and vacation, it's a beautiful lake. If you hit it at the right time the fishing is fantastic.

Due to traits necessary to survive in the high alkaline content of the lake, the Eagle Lake rainbow is a very hardy strain. The Dept of Fish & Game is hatching this strain in some of their northern hatcheries for planting in other lakes in the north state.

These fish tend to have brighter colors than "standard" rainbows. They're beautiful fish.

Hope you can make it up there sometime.
