Our gun liquidation sale is going on now! Even if your preferred season is over you can still hunt for great deals in our hunting department. Mountain lion season (with hounds) is in full swing and ends April 14th. Wolf season is still going through March 15th. Duck and Goose runs though the first part of January. Please review your regulations for specific details on the areas you plan on hunting. Make sure to bring pictures down of your successful hunts and post them on our board!
Holding Helena Reservoir: With this cold front upon us the lake should be freezing over soon allowing some opportunity for some great ice fishing. The best set up is a Swedish pimple treble hook with maggot, or a glow hook/ maggot set up. Working closer to the shore seems to be the trick on catching the perch. Around the middle island of the lake seems to be producing ling.
Missouri River fishing has been really good up on the Mo… You should see some good dry fly activity with the clouds and rain/snow coming for a visit. BWO’s and Midges are the ticket. A Purple Haze with a small dropper like a BWO emerger is a deadly combo. Streamer fishing should get really good this weekend! Don’t be afraid to switch colors to find what they want.
Hauser Lake: Not too much happening but the best hours to fish are from 3pm-11pm.
