Bill Hinrichs and Neil Wellnitz, both from Rock Creek Marina, spent a day fishing with the Captain on the Big Dry Arm of Fort Peck Reservoir. Saturday was a beautiful day with a nice little breeze and the fishing was great. Here is the Captain’s report:
We ended up catching and releasing 62 fish. The majority were northern pike, ranging from 24 to 35 inches in length. We decided to keep three walleye and four bass for elk camp. We caught the majority of our fish on a gold colored shad rap. The j-13 jointed gold Rapala worked well too.
Here are some pictures of the fish we caught and lures we used:
We trolled the three lines just out and above the weeds in 10 to 20 feet of water. We kept our speed constant, around 2 miles per hour.
It was a fun day and Bill expects the fishing to remain good into October. You can call him to get an updated fishing report at (406) 485 – 2560
