Youth Pheasant/Waterfowl opens this weekend, September 27 – 28th. With our specials on hunting loads you can’t afford not to take the kids hunting.
FWP is really adamant about being bear aware this season. We’ve already had a few encounters so carry your bear spray.
Upcoming opening dates:
Canyon Ferry Lake: Trout fishing has been pretty solid up north by the dam and Cemetery Island. Try trolling cowbells or a flashy spoon tipped with a worm. Shoreline fishing has been productive as well—try throwing wooly buggers or spoons. The Walleye are still productive as well. The south is still producing plenty of Walleye but if you’re in deeper water try targeting the Walleye around 20’ deep with a crawling harness with worm or Rapalas.
Helena Regulating Reservoir: Snagging season for Kokanee Salmon is in full swing and will continue through the end of October.
Missouri River: The big “Mo” is fishing well, cooler nights have kept the trout happy and hungry. Trico’s have been slowing down but mayflies have been starting to pick up in the mornings and afternoons. By mid-day through the evening try switching to hoppers and you can also have some luck with an ant dropper, as well.
