We Are Stocked Up and Ready For The Fall Whitefish Run. Vexilars And Cameras Just Showed Up For Upcoming Ice Season.
Flathead River – Whitefish are starting to stack in the deeper holes. The incoming cold weather will help kick start the run. Crappie bite is heating up. Try using a small jig under a slip bobber and fish underwater structure. Pike continue to be caught using spoons retrieved fairly quick. Smelt and a bobber also continues to work well!!
Loon Lake – Fishing has been very consistent. Powerbait remains to be the bait of choice for the stocked rainbows.
Blanchard Lake – Bass and crappies continue to stock up the winter reserves. Small plastics around the weed edges can be very productive in the early morning or evening hours.
Lake Rogers – Cutthroat have started to be caught. Using small ice jigs under a slip bobber has been very consistent on the edge of weed lines and holes in the foliage.
Echo Lake – Fish have started to move into coves to find the fall forage. Try using a weightless fluke around ambush points. Running a slip bobber and a small minnow plastic around structure can also be very effective.
Smith Lake – Pike being caught off the docks. Spinnerbait is king, fish it fast around ambush points in the weed edges.
