Summer Fishing

The fishing remains steady onĀ Flathead Lake. Fishing the north end of the lake around the river mouth is your best bet in July and August.

Trolling the usual dodger, flasher, houchies combo still produces the most fish. Good number of eater size lake trout average 3-5lbs.

Also try a few spoons in the perch pattern near the surface. The fish are suspended through out the water column.

Some bigger lake trout off of Woods Bay Point and off the shelf at Yellow Bay are giving up some nice lakers in the 15 to 20 lb. range. Although you probably will only catch two or three of these bigger fish they are a true trophy fish.

Swan Lake pike fishing is in full swing the water has warmed and the pike are in the shallows. Nice size pike averaging 5lbs. with some bigger over 10 pound fish.

Tight lines.
