Whitefish are starting to show up on the north end of Flathead Lake in Northwest Montana. Try fishing Carolina Point, the Delta, Hatchery Bay and Somers Bay. Use 3/8-1/2 oz jigging spoons, ZIMMERS Rattle Dzastors, KB spoons and JT jigs, all of which are local tackle and work well. For lake trout action, try flashers and Brad’s super baits, Flatfish and Apex plugs are working well also. Try Mid Lake Bar and Eelta, Woods Bay Point- 80-120 ft of water. Try Elmo and Big Arm for perch and white fish.
Lake Mary Ronan
Good numbers of perch are being caught in Lake Mary Ronan jigging in 20-25 ft of water near Camp Tuffit or White Rock Bay. A few nice rainbows and bass are being caught as well.
The Thompson River is fishing well for nice browns, brookies and rainbows.
Excellent bass and pike action, along with few nice walleye are being caught in the Noxon Reservoir.
Lots sunfish and crappie, few nice bass and pike.
Early morning trolling for salmon has been good – try for bass later in the day.
Hungry Horse Reservoir
Good cutthroat fishing with gold spoons and flicker Shads.
Until Next Time, Tight Lines!
