What days of the week are the lakes open?

We schedule a rest day before each booking to ensure the best possible fishing.
The lakes are not fished more than 2 days in a row, except when a single party wants to book consecutive days.
Can I fish Eagle Canyon two days in a row?

We have numerous groups that fish two days in a row each year, and many have done so for years.
If you have a large group from out of the area and are looking to extend your trip, we recommend fishing Eagle Canyon on day 1, fishing the Lower Sac or Trinity with our guides on day 2, and coming back to Eagle Canyon again on day 3 of your trip.

You can catch plenty of fish from shore.
