A little late, but salmon are starting to hit the Eagle River. Several have been seen and our guest, Brian, hooked into a large salmon in Pratts yesterday. It went over a lip of fast water and slipped away but it was our first hookup of 2015! We hear reports of a fish caught at 'The Gap', 17 miles upriver, and also reports of large salmon in White Bear River. And there must be plenty of them spread across the ocean, as we had a report of turbot fishermen sighting salmon 106 miles north east of Cape Horn.
We expect that over the next couple of weeks the river should see plenty of fresh fish with every rising tide. Bring it on!
