Fishing has been very slow on the north end of Flathead. Fishermen were reporting seeing lots of fish on the finder but nothing was biting. Charter captains were getting skunked and fishing wasn’t a lot better on the south end.
Wednesday was a very hot bite off the delta. Boats were catching dozens of 2-6 pound lake trout with a few slot fish. I went out Thursday morning so, of course, the bite was off. Barometric pressure dropped, the fish were real neutral. We caught 5, lost 3 others. Downrigging 40’ down over 100’-160‘ seemed to be the best. Most action was off the southeast corner of the delta, just look for the pack of boats.”
