Eagle Valley Lodge – Dry Fly Paradise
Fishing surface flies like poppers, gurglers, or even mouse imitations, is in our opinion as exciting as it gets. At Eagle Valley, this is exactly what we do! Skate a mouse pattern across the stream and watch aggressive Rainbows hitting it with full force! All in a clear stream where you see everything happening from your fly hitting the water until its torn to pieces by huge rainbow trout!
The fishing area consists of two lakes connected by a 3 km stream. The upper lake is deeper with crystal clear water while the lower lake, connected to the larger by the stream, is shallower and more colorful. The fish are spread out between both lakes and are found all over the river, which offers anglers an array of techniques to try. Everything from skated dry flies and bombers to fast retrieved streamers have been tested with great results. Both lakes contain shallow sections facilitating wading and sight fishing, very similar to fishing on bonefish flats. With the biggest fish caught so far weighing in at over 8 kg we are quite optimistic for that record to be broken during the first official fishing season in 2018! Fishing this location does not require any difficult wading. While fishing in the stream requires almost no wading at all, wading in the lake consists of maneuvering over solid bottom and through relatively shallow water.
