  • Flathead Lake – The mud line is pushing out. Try trolling Rapala Scatter Raps paired with Spin Doctor flashers in 20'-40'. You can also try jigging deep at 160-200ft using tubes and hair jigs.
  • East Bay (Flathead Lake) – The Perch bite is still going strong! Use Gitzit jigs or beetle spins in shallow water to get those fish.
  • Lake Koocanusa - Trolling flies and plugs off planer boards have been producing good rainbows. Also, a good bull trout bite using flatfish around points in 30'-50'. (Be sure to have your catch card)
  • Church Slough - Open to boating now. Try rolling weedless spoons around structure to get a nibble. Hearing that stripping flies have been picking up a few fish as well.
  • McGregor Lake - Rainbow fishing has been steady. Try using shallow cranks in craw patterns or flies offshore for best results.
  • Thompson River - Good river flows have browns and rainbows biting. Use some golden stones and Ray Charles flies for bites.
  • Flathead River - Flowing near 6000 cfs and slightly green. There has been some good fishing from a drift boat using nymphs.
  • Swan Lake - Good lake trout bite in 40'-60'. Try using white tubes and cutbait deadsticking along with slow jigging to encourage that bite.
