Fishing Report N.W. Montana
Flathead Lake fishing is slow right now. The fish are heading to their spawning areas and don’t seem to be very interested in feeding. Try pulling the typical flasher from Pro-Troll, Electronic Pro Chip 8 Series, with a #35 Octopus/Squid(41/4”) from Silver Horde. The water is extremely clear this time of year, so remember on a bright sunny day use very bright flashers and some tinsel inserts in you squids.Try fishing closer to the shore, especially near the islands, in 60’ of water.
I fished on the Flathead River yesterday for some Lake Superior Whitefish. We tried several holes and put 4 nice fish in the boat. This whitefish run will really get going in the next week or so. 100 fish limits are very common.
I will be moving the big boat up to Lake Koocanusa Oct. 20th and start fishing for the kamloop rainbows. I will fish for these big rainbows Nov. /Dec.
If your interesting in this exciting fishery book early!
See ya on the water
