  • Flathead Lake - Use caution when fishing near the delta, lots of snags and hazards have been getting pushed out of the river. As the water warms Lakers will continue to go deeper. Rapalas have been a good option if you’re going pick something up.
  • Flathead River - Use Extreme Caution, River is in Flood Stage!! Flows are still hovering around 50,000 cubic feet, look elsewhere for fishing opportunity
  • McWenneger Slough - Water levels are high and has fish dispersed into flooded areas. You still have chances to pick up a few pike along points and weed clusters.
  • Echo Lake - Bass fishing continues to be hot. Grab some Senko’s for your best bet.
  • Ashley Lake - Salmon fishing continues to be hot. Hali’s in natural colors along with Swedish Pimples pair with Zimmer heavy glows are solid options.
  • Middle Thompson Lake - Pike fishing is picking up. Try using spinner baits along with hanging smelt under a pike rig. Trolling salmon with wedding rings has been good as well.
  • Lake Mary Ronan - Salmon bite has been good. Hali jigs paired with a maggot has been a good bet. You can also try using Swedish Pimples paired with Zimmer Heavy Glows or Mack’s Glow Hooks.
  • Hungry Horse Reservoir - West side road closed between 29 and 34 mile marker. Stained water conditions but has been decent fishing for both Cutthroat and Bulls in the creek mouths. Try using Kamloopers and Daredevil spoons.
