Feeling Groovy at Eagle Creek Ranch Fishing

Fishing Eagle Creek Ranch is ideally located for easy access to some of the most desirable bass, trout and salmon waters on the West Coast. With the upper Trinity River running right through the middle of the ranch, the northern end of Trinity Lake only 5 miles away, and several of Northern California’s and Oregon’s best rivers within a reasonable drive, the Ranch is a great place for anglers to use as a fishing destination for our local waters, or even as a hub for more thorough exploration of the region’s fisheries by car or plane.

If you’re interested in centering your vacation around fishing, or maybe just including it as part of a more relaxation-based holiday, talk to us about putting together an inclusive package that includes expert guides, and/or transportation as part of your stay with us. We are intimately acquainted with the best guides that Northern California and Southern Oregon have to offer, and can arrange fly-outs from our local air strip, as well as incorporate stays at other region lodges.
