FISHING REPORT: EAGLE RIVER

OVERVIEW

The Eagle River is our home river and flows right behind our shop in Edwards. It is an excellent freestone river with prolific hatches. It flows from high above Camp Hale south of Redcliff to its confluence with the Colorado River in Dotsero.  It is most famous for the prolific Caddis hatches that come off in the spring and early summer. The Eagle is noted for  its excellent dry fly fishing for wild brown and rainbow trout. The float fishing season is fantastic but short and runs from April-July in most years.  The Eagle can wade fished year round and there is excellent public access to the river below Wolcott and above Edwards.
