: EAGLE NEST LAKE: Fishing for trout was fair to good using PowerBait from the bank and from anchored boats. Anglers also had luck trolling with light weight tackle and using bright colored spinners. Fishing for perch was fair using worms. Fishing for kokanee salmon was slow. We had no other reports.
