Just to pass this onto our old and new clients. This has been an interesting winter as we are getting many advance bookings this early in the winter. We have taken deposits for trips as far out as next July and next November. If this is any sign to come for next season, I would suggest to book early to get the date/dates you desire.
My favorite time to fish the big lake is March, April and May. The reason is we target the bigger lake trout and do very well! Our best days ever for the big lakers can come at this time of the season. High teens and low 20 lb. fish are common. Average 8 to 12 fish to the boat on a half day charter.
Lake Koocanusa can be very productive in March, April and May. The surface temperature is still very cold and the big rainbows are very aggressive. The ice and the weather will dictate when we get back on this body of water, but I sure do look forward to it.
Book early, I think it is going to be a very busy year.
