The Captain and his first mate Berny decided to try Holter Reservoir today for trout. It was a great choice! They hit the water at 10:30 and had their limit of 10 trout by noon. The trout were in the 16-20 inch range and the meat was bright red. They fished exclusively by Split Rock and trolled 2.2 miles per hour between Split Rock and Log Gulch campground.They had two lines on downriggers that were 9-12 feet deep. They also long lined two mono lines in the back of the boat 85 feet.
The fish were biting on the 4 lures shown in this post:
Two Viking spoons, one fire tiger and the other brown trout. They also caught fish on a pink syclops and a j-7 orange white rapala. The other boats around the Captain were also catching their fair share of trout.
Now is the time to head to Holter for some great trout fishing. The weather is supposed to be great as we welcome fall to Montana.
