: EAGLE NEST LAKE: Fishing was good using PowerBait for rainbow trout up to 20 inches. A few trout were also caught by anglers trolling spinners on light tackle. Fishing was fair to good using big streamers, jointed Rapalas and spinners for northern pike. We had no other reports. The lake has opened to boating and one of the courtesy boat docks is partially installed and useable.
