Trip Journal/Log/Report/Diary: 

We saw lots of Bald Eagles which offered us great photo opportunities.

Moving water skills are required for this river during spring run off. The Eagle River is known as a canoe-eater at this time of year. On our last trip we saw 2 busted canoes in log jams.

Special Comments: 

We leave one vehicle at the take out and drive back to the put in. This is a nice day trip of about 5 hours or better with stops. Summer or fall is the best time. The Eagle is a major spawning river for Spring, Sockeye salmon and Kokanee.
