The last couple of days out on Flathead Lake have been very good. We have been catching 6 to 10 nice fish averaging 3 to 5 lbs.Also catching a few larger fish up to 10lbs. Try trolling off Angel Pt. I have been pulling chrome dodgers with green/white houtchies. I been having more hits by uping my trolling speed, try going 2.5mph. Also some perch pattern spoons have been picking up some fish.
It is not to early to start thinking about fall fishing Lake Koocanusa or Bitteroot Lake for the big rainbows. I usually wait until about October 20th, but I think with the cooler fall weather I will start fishing about the 10th of October. I have several charters on the calender and I am getting anxious to start catching those big rainbows. Book early as this is a short season ending Nov. 30th then starting back up in February thru May.
Fall fishing is some of the best fishing of the entire year
