Still lots of Ice in the Northwest Montana Fishing Report
By Matt Schauer
Chancy at Snappy’s in Kalispell tells us, Flathead Lake is holding up well from West Shore State Park to Painted Rocks. A lot of guys are jigging in 130 to 150 feet of water.
McGregor Lake has been good through the ice with golden minnows in about 80 feet of water.
Island Lake still fishing pretty good for perch in the 8 to 10 inch class, Eckle, and Pablo Reservoir is also good. Lake Mary Ronan’s has been good in that 8 to 12 inch range.
The Perch Assault is coming up soon, and last weeks Snappy’s Derby went well for Lake Mary Ronan. The big fish for men’s was Mark Summers 1.68 and for the women was Susan Josma .56 Perch. And for the kids category Carly Sable had a 1.34 Perch in the 7 to 12 year old class.
