: EAGLE NEST LAKE: Kokanee snagging opens October 1 and runs through December 31. Trout fishing was fair to good using PowerBait from the bank and from anchored boats. A few trout were also caught by anglers using salmon eggs and spinners. Fishing for kokanee was slow but there were a few caught by anglers trolling spinners tipped with corn. Fishing was good using worms for perch. We had no reports on northern pike.
