Fishing Report

Eagle Lake - 6/26/2017 9:01:00 AM

Yore Country Store and The Landing have plenty of bait and supplies. 

***New crappie regulations went into effect October 1, 2015.  The creel limit was reduced from 50 to 30 fish per angler, and all fish 11" and under must be released immediately.***

 

Bass

There are no recent reports on bass fishing on Eagle.  A 9.8 pound bass was caught a while back, and some anglers were having a bit of luck with spinnerbaits and soft plastics around the cypress trees and the piers. Largemouth bass must be over 16" to keep.

Bream

Some nice Bluegill and a couple of Black Crappie caught at Eagle. 

No recent reports on bream, but it had been good.  Some very nice Bluegill are being caught in shallow water and around the piers. Try crickets or tightlining with redworms.

Crappie

Currently there are no reports on crappie.  Remember, crappie must be over 11" to keep at Eagle Lake.  Try the cypress trees across from the boat ramp and around the piers with minnows in 8 - 12 feet of water.

Catfish

Catfish are still biting very well on Eagle.  A pair of anglers caught 38 recently, and had a 100 qt. cooler full of fish they had caught the day before. Try tightlining with worms, minnows, or your favorite catfish bait.

White bass

No reports on white bass fishing. There is no limit on these fish, but there is a 6 fish limit on hybrid striped bass and they must be over 15" to keep.
