: EAGLE CREEK: Eagle Creek looks to be in good fishing shape but the winter steelhead run should be considered about over on the creek. The effort has been very light and catch has been low. The hatchery completed spawning of returning adult winters several weeks ago. Anglers should keep in mind that reduced steelhead smolt releases in recent years have had an impact on numbers of adult steelhead returning. Its still a bit early but look for some spring Chinook to enter the creek in May as fish return from acclimation releases of two years ago.

The most popular spots to try include the Bonnie Lure area, the water above and below the lower fish ladder, Eagle Fern Park, and up near the hatchery. Much of the creek meanders through private property so pay attention to your location and secure permission before fishing on private land.
