Ice Fishing gear is showing up daily. Vexilars Cameras and anything else you would need for early ice success.
Flathead Lake - Reports of Lakers showing up on the east side of the lake. Throwing Spoons and Rapalas in the shallows has been very effective.
Flathead River – Whitefish are on the FEED!!!!. Small plastics on a 1/8th or 1/4th jighead seem to be the ticket. Look for deeper pockets in the river where the whitefish will stack up. Old Steel bridge has been very good. Pike are getting more active, Focus on bigger baits. Weeds are receding and the fish will start moving into hard structure. Look for bait fish.
Loon Lake –Powerbait has been working very well, 1-2 foot off bottom with Chartreuse dough.
Whitefish Lake - Lake trout are very active! Jigging has been very productive with a small tube tipped with cutbait. Look for rocky points that have access to deeper drop offs.
Rogers Lake – Cutthroat trout being caught in 10 foot of water, Small jigs under a slip bobber are very effective on the weed edges.
Foys Lake - Rainbow trout are getting active! Silver and gold spoons being trolled or casting into the shallower depths (5-15 foot of water).
Little Bitterroot – Rainbows are being caught. Trolling with planer boards can be very effective this time of year. Bigger fish have been pushing into the shallower water looking for an easy meal!! Rapalas remain to king.
Echo Lake - Whitefish are being caught in 20-30 foot of water off main lake points. Small tungsten jigs tipped with a micro plastic are working very well! Lots of fish being caught.
