: EAGLE NEST LAKE: Fishing from the bank and from anchored boats was fair to good using PowerBait for trout. Boaters also did well trolling kokanee killers and Platte River specials. Fishing was excellent using worms for perch. Trolling for kokanee was slow. Fishing was fair using crank baits, spinners and streamers for small northern pike up to 22 inches. Ronald Vonderhaar of Albuquerque reported that he and his two kids had a good time here over the weekend. They caught rainbow trout trolling kokanee killers, a kokanee on a Kastmaster and perch from shore using worms.
