  • Tobacco River/Graves Creek - Salmon are starting to clear out, but few remain in pockets.
  • Kootenai Falls - Still slow. Picking up a few decent size fish between 16"-20" here and there.
  • Flathead Lake - Trolling Lake Trout remains good. The West Shore and delta are both good options. Mostly trolling around 35'-50' with T50 flatfish or FLC inline spinners.
  • Middle Thompson - Trolling for Salmon is still producing some decent fish. Macks Sling Blades paired with Hoochie Rigs and Pautzke fire corn are the ticket.
  • Lower Thompson - Pike are fishing is still good. Spinnerbaits, Chatterbaits or pike tamers are all good options right now.
  • Lake Mary Ronan - Good perch fishing. Jigging 16'-24' using small grub baits pulls the best numbers.
  • Flathead River - Trout are still looking up. Try Royal Wulffs in size 12 & 14 or a hopper dropper rig to get some action. Spinners in mayfly or trout patterns have continued to get fish as well.
