Last Fall I ended up hooking into some springers while looking for coho up at the hatchery. Curious if Anyone knows if there are any in the Creek yet, perhaps at Bonnie Lure?

DFW recreation report, might as well tell people the truth so they don't go to the coast and tackle on peoples beloved natives, right? ;).

EAGLE CREEK: steelhead

The creek conditions are looking very good, but the winter steelhead angling is over for the spring. There could be a few native fish lingering around in the upper stretches for catch-and-release action.

As long as the good spring flows remain in place, anglers can expect some spring chinook to enter the creek by mid to late May. These would be returns from direct releases of smolts completed in 2008 and 2009.

Long stretches of Eagle Creek run through private property, particularly up near the hatchery and from an area below the lower ladder on down past Bonnie Lure to the mouth. Anglers are advised to pay close attention to where you fish and we encourage you to ask permission prior to accessing or crossing private lands on your way to your favorite fishing hole. See Page 15 of the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulation pamphlet for more information on “Your Rights to Use the Surface, Bed, and Banks of Oregon’s Rivers and Lakes”.

Trip to the Creek

Had a nice Hike and worked on my roll cast at Bonnie Lure and Eagle Fern but didn't see any fish. Guess they're not in yet.

There aren't any fish in eagle creek. It's purely a nature reserve / bird watching destination.
