Chancy at Snappy’s in Kalispell

Chancy at Snappy’s provided this fishing report and the rivers are looking good. The main stem of the Flathead River has been getting some decent fish on flies. The South Fork (shown in the picture above) is fishing really good and the water is clear. The North Fork, of the Flathead River, is still high and a little off color. Flathead Lake is fishing well, at the delta. Heard a rumor that someone got whitefish off of Woods Bay.

On Lake Koocanusa, there are good reports up by Rexford for kokannee. The Thompson Lakes are fishing well, catching pike from two to 10 pounds.  The perch have also been picking up. And Smith Lake is a great place to catch pike in the two to four pound range.

Leonard from Roberts Bait and Tackle

Leonard reports Holter is still fishing well with jigs, leaches and crawlers for walleye. Pishkun Reservoir was low.  A few perch and a few nice northerns have been reported in the back bays, but it went sour a little bit.

Bynum is still getting a lot of nice perch, but it takes catching about 100 of them, for 20 good sized keepers. On Francis, the bite is still going well with crank bait and leaches. On Fresno Reservoir the bites slowed down a bit. The river fishing is still full of moss. If you have any questions or need rod & reel repair call Leonard at (406) 454-1877.  Also, be aware that Roberts Bait and Tackle will be closed from July 19th to the 22nd.
