The fishing on Fort Peck is starting to improve. The spawning is wrapping up. Last weekend the males in Hell Creek, Southerland, and west to Hell Creek and beyond were still milking. I believe that the females are pretty much done spawning and a few were starting to bite with the big spike in air temperatures. While the fishing is picking up it is still sporadic – hit and miss. Jig and minnow is your best presentation – either vertical jig or pitching. Fishing depths – 4 to 20 feet. From this point on fishing should continue to get better and more consistent.
We had 2 fish over 30 inches – both released. Good Fishing.
