(Steve Hellegaard pictured above with a nice trout he caught)
The Captain and Steve Hellegaard of Missoula went fishing on Holter Wednesday. It was a very nice day with the high in the Helena area reported to be 57 degrees. The water temperature on Holter hovered around 33 degrees, and there were a lot of boats fishing for perch and trout and maybe some walleye.
It was slow for the Captain, as they managed to hook about 10 trout. Most were caught by the Kit’s Tackle Glass Minnow and a few were caught by trolling. They fished all the way from the Gates of the Mountains, where they put in to Log Gulch campground. “It looks like you can now launch a boat at Log Gulch and the Lower campground by the dam,” said the Captain–even though they didn’t go down that far.
Anglers were also enjoying fishing from shore with power bait or egg sacks. Oh, and the Captain kept pinching himself because he couldn’t believe it was still February!
