Chancy from Snappy’s
Chancy at Snappy’s says the fishing’s been good as things cool down. A lot of guys trout fishing Swan Lake trolling the shoreline. Van Lake has had some good reports on rainbows bait fishing off the shore with power bait. Some are fly fishing off pontoon boats with wooly buggers and Nymphs, doing pretty good. Pike fishing on The Middle and Lower Thompson been pretty good, throwing big plugs, swim bait, or bait fishing with smelt or squaw fish. Some out fishing out a little deeper 25-30ft range fishing for some nice perch. Ochoe Lake the bass fishing’s been a little slow. A few good smallmouth and some some good Lake Superior been good in 35-40ft of water. Flathead Lake has had some good reports out on the delta in 60-80ft of water jigging or trolling. And some going shallower in about 30-40ft of water getting those Lake Superior Whitefish. Woods Bay and Woods Bay Point doing well trolling Flat Fish getting some good macks. Smith Lake still has a lot of small pike and some nice perch in that 10-12 inch range. The Flathead River down by Snappy’s, the Main Stem should be kicking in soon with Lake Superior Whitefish. Usually it begins October to mid October. There’s been a few guys just drift fishing for rainbows.
