This fall it seems that the trout are biting aggressively and are bigger on average. This week the Captain had three days of fishing on Holter that saw a lot of fish come in the boat. Monday, Berny and the Captain caught their limit in an hour and half. Tuesday was much of the same with Downrigger Dale and Don Beardlsey. Wednesday, the fishing remained hot as Montana Broadcasters President/CEO Dewey Bruce joined DownRigger and the Captain for another fun day of fishing. Trout are running shallow in the 9-15 foot water column over 90 feet of water. Split Rock is a good area and the Captain also did well by Cottonwood Creek on Wednesday. The trout that have been caught have been good sized ranging from 16 – 20 inches.
Viking Spoons in sven dust, firetiger and brown trout, along with cyclops in pink, and green needle fish seemed to work the best A few fish were caught on J-7 rapalas.
