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.

There is no lodging at the lake so we will be staying in Red Bluff.

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!

We encourage you to visit your local fly fishing specialty store for all your tackle needs.

If you have question please give Peter a call
