Eagle Canyon Lake's trophy trout are the biggest, healthiest, hardest-fighting rainbows you'll find anywhere. These fish are raised in the clean, cold spring-fed waters of Mt. Lassen. You will find our rainbows to be incredibly eager to take flies. Our big fish are quality fish.Plenty of five-pound-plus 'bows per day typify the kind of success that distinguishes our fishery; 10-pound-plus 'bows are hooked regularly.

Located just off Highway 36 East, approximately 20 miles northeast of Red Bluff, California. The lakes are located on a working cattle ranch in the oak-covered foothills west of Mt. Lassen National Park. This serene outdoor setting is characterized by spring-fed waters, volcanic outcrops, and snow-capped mountains. We have two spring-fed lakes on the ranch. The big lake is 3.5 acres and the small lake is 1.5 acres.

Float tubes: It's not necessary to use a float tube, but it is a lot of fun! Pontoon boats also work here.

The big pond was a concrete ramp with handrails to facilitate launching of float tubes. Don’t forget your flippers and booties

 Our host will help you disinfect your float tube/pontoon boat before use.

Waders/Boots: We recommend neoprene or breathable chest-high waders. Neoprene waders are great for keeping warm while float tubing or during cold weather. Always wear a wading belt with your waders!

 Felt, spiked, and rubber-bottomed boots will all work here. If you’re float tubing,

lightweight neoprene booties usually work best with flippers. Our host will help you disinfect your waders & boots before use.

Clothing: Bring clothing suitable for both warm and wet, cool weather.

Remember, no tackle is provided or available!
