It’s not always easy to learn the secrets from locals, especially when it comes to fly fishing hot spots. This year, the Eagle River has the anglers talking.

“The Eagle River is an outstanding freestone fishery that offers uncanny dry fly, nymphing and streamer fishing,” said Tom Gibson with Vail Valley Anglers. “The Eagle offers a variety of challenging water that rewards the patient angler with a shot at rainbow, brown and cutbow trout.”
