11/24/12 Eagle Lake (Susanville)

After getting off the Delta around 4:00 PM the previous day, we put the downriggers back on the boat and headed for Eagle Lake. The trip was schedule to have a group of 18 people, organized by Bryan Roccucci. Bryan asked Cliff Spediacci to fill in and work with Ed Fisk and myself to take this group out.  In years past Ed and I have worked with Bryan on this trip. We all launched at 6:30 and worked our way towards Wildcat Point in heavy fog that was sitting on the lake and stayed until noon. The bite started off a little slow but soon picked up. Cliff and I spent most of our time between Wildcat and Shrimp Island fishing in the top 5 feet of water. We were trying to work the rocky points but it was hard due to the very limited visibility. Ed went a little farther north.  The hot ticket for all three boats was the Orange Arctic Fox Trolling Fly and an orange Sep’s Grub and Pro Cure Trophy Trout scent. We ended the day with limits for all 18 clients and also threw a few small ones back throughout the day.  The average size was around two and a half pounds with a handful going over three pounds. There’s only one month left before Eagle Lake closes.
