How's Eagle Nest Fishing?
June 24, 2017
Trout fishing is good from both the bank and boats. If fishing from the bank use powerbait and salmon eggs. If trolling use Platte River specials, double whammies and kokanee killers. For perch fishing use worms. Northern pike fishing is slow with some success on jekr baits and large streamers.
