Flathead Lake Fishing Report

Winter fishing on Flathead continues to be good. We can launch at West shore State Park. We are fishing in 80-160 ft. of water from the boat launch to Cedar Island.

Fishing shallow at 80’, try the typical dodger or flasher combo with the houchies in a glow white.  Also, try the Brad’s Super Bait behind a flasher.

If you want to try and target the bigger fish, try 120-190’ of water with big flatfish on the bottom.  Remember; fish these flatfish at 1 mph or less as these big fish will not chase a lure very fast.

We put 11 fish in the boat yesterday morning in 3 hours.  Nice size fish, 3-6lbs. perfect for eating.

The water temperature is 38 degrees, be careful and stay warm. If the wind comes up, play it safe and get off the lake.
