  • Flathead Lake - Lakers are still biting off the delta. Both jigging and trolling are good right now.
  • Echo Lake - Bass are moving up shallow. Using soft plastics and shallow cranks have been good options.
  • Lake Koocanusa - Kokanee fishing has been picking up around Rexford. A few rainbows and bulls mixed in as well.
  • Church Slough - Bass are moving around structure and starting to fan beds. Try using Senko’s and craws to encourage a bite.
  • McGregor Lake - Laker fishing is still good. Try jigging off ledges in 70'-80' of water.
  • Flathead River – River is still flowing around 12000 cf/s. Expect more run-off with higher temps melting off snowpack here soon. They are calling for higher than normal levels in Flathead Lake by Memorial Day, so that water will be running down the river.
  • Swan Lake - Good pike fishing on the south end. Use weedless spoons or dead bait for good action. The lakers are biting small pearl tubes in 60'-80' of water.
  • Murray Lake – The trout are still biting around the shorelines. The best options have been using spoons or marshmallows.
  • Smith Lake - Lots of smaller pike biting. Using spoons or spinner baits in white or red have been the best choices. You can also try dead bait off the bottom to get some hits.
