Eagle River Fly Fishing Report November 2020

Fly Fishing on the Eagle River remains excellent from Avon to Gypsum. Expect fishing to remain good until the weather change this Saturday. The flows on the Eagle River are very low and clear. Lighter tippet is necessary especially when targeting rising trout in slower water. The crowds have been thinning out but you can certainly expect to see fishermen on most public stretches. Midges and smaller Baetis have been our go to patterns under a bobber. RS2, Red Butt Midges & Olive Jigs have been working good enough. The Streamer bite has been consistent but you must keep moving to find aggressive trout. Olive & Natural Slump Busters as well as Sculpzillas have been moving a lot of fish. Be sure to vary your stripping speed when working streamer patterns. Slower moving streamers have getting more attention in certain water types. The Brown Trout are more than likely spawning in certain areas of the Eagle River. If you see a shallow gravel bed with paired up fish, leave them alone. Don’t be an instagram hero and rip a spawning trout of their Redd. For last minute Eagle River fly fishing reports feel free to give us a call at 970-368-5959.
