Chancy from Snappy’s
Chancy at Snappy’s says Echo Lake is doing well on bass large and smallmouth. A lot of guys are using crank bait, and Pete’s tackle has the new “wacky worm.” The Whitefish action on Echo has been excellent also, in 35-40 ft of water. The Lower Stillwater’s been getting good reports early in the morning using live leaches in the weeds in about 10-15 ft of water for perch and a few small pike. Hungry Horse Reservoir been fishing pretty good. You want to troll some little clios, for good results on some cut throat. A few been trolling for plugs for some nice bulls too. The Flathead River and its forks are fishing really well right now. Sophie Lake around Eureka been having good reports on large mouth bass, kokannee, and Northerns. Kookanusa’s been fishing well for kokannee, around Rexford and down around the dam. Noxon Reservoir still getting good reports on walleye. Been a rumor of someone catching a 32 inch walleye. The Lower Flathead River from Kerr Dam to Thompson Falls has been fishing excellent. Flathead Lake has had good results for guys trolling 180-200 ft of water with Brad Super Baits. The Whitefish been a little slow, but if you want to try for the whitefish try the delta or bay point 35-45 ft of water. The Montana Mack Attack and Jig Fest is August 24th & 25th on Flathead Lake, and it has a $25 entry fee.
