The Eel is a terrific river system for fly fishers who are afoot or afloat. It’s also one of the prettiest and longest stream corridors in northern California, measuring 100 miles. It eventually hits the ocean near Ferndale. The beautiful fir, redwood, and other trees that line the river and the access along Highway 101 are remarkable. One can fly fish the river just about anywhere, from the tidewater environs to the upper waters at the town of Leggett. Types of Fish: King salmon (chinook), silver salmon (coho), steelhead, and shad. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
