Flathead River
Still fishing well for Lake Whitefish. The river is in good shape- nice and clear water. Also hearing about a good number of Cutthroat and Rainbows along with a few Lake Trout. Be sure to check your regulations as most rivers & streams close December 1st. The Flathead river does stay open, but with strict regulations. Lower Flathead River: near the Sportsman’s Bridge is fishing well in holes. Pulling out Lake Trout and Whitefish.
​Koocanusa
Fishing well for Bull Trout and a few Rainbows mixed in. Try from Rexford south toward Bridge. Trolling plugs or flies seems to be the best options.

Ice Reports:
We haven’t seen any safe ice in Northwest Montana yet. A few lakes are starting to show some, but nothing safe for ice fishing. Look for Smith, Lower Stillwater, Rodgers and Island Lake to be the first to freeze.

​Georgetown Lake
 over by Anaconda has 4”-6” of ice at last report. Look for good Salmon, Brookies and Rainbow fishing.
