Despite the lower than normal waterflow on the Flathead River, which currently is running about half of what it normally does this time of the year according to the water flow gauges located near Perma, MT. Plastic worms are working well for both the bass and northern pike.
“Fishing has been excellent on the lower Flathead River,” said Brent Hamernick from Missoula. “The bass are more concentrated it seems in some of the deeper holes now because of the low water so when you find them there is normally a few in the same hole” he added “I caught a reel nice bass that measured 19 inches but was very fat so when it was in the water it looked a lot bigger.”
The bass shown in the picture above is 19 inches long and as hammer says.. “a pig” (he caught and released the 19″ Bass) The picture below shows a few bass that Hamernick kept for table fare. The water is about 10 feet from the edge of cement of the boat ramp located 6 miles west of Perma on Highway 200, but according to Hamernick you can still launch a medium to smaller size boat.
