Almost a year ago at this time, the Captain was calling Montana “Siberia”….I am thinking that might still apply for 2018.
Apparently, the northern pike fishing had picked up at Noxon:
The northern pike fishing has picked up on Noxon Rapids Reservoir according to reports from John Harris from Lakeside Resort in Trout Creek. “We had a monster of a pike brought in the store last week that weighed 28 pounds that was caught through the ice”, he said.
While there were mixed reviews at Georgetown Lake:
Scott Arnold fished Georgetown last week and he and a buddy didn’t do very well on either the trout or the salmon, “We fished all day Thursday and most of Friday. The fishing was slow for us as we only caught a handful of trout and salmon”. Arnold went on to say that seemed to be the case for most of the fisherman he spoke with on the lake too! However Tracy Powers and Brandt Hamernick from Missoula sent me a great video of Hamernick catching and releasing a giant trout in their ice shack through the ice on Georgetown last Saturday. You can view the video on montanaoutdoor.com. I also spoke with Ed McClean from Missoula who has a cabin on Georgetown and he said Saturday morning the fish were smarter than he was that morning.
Dick Zimmer passed along this fishing report to the Captain back then:
“Fishing at Lake Mary Ronan at 43 feet of water lots of Kokanee Salmon. Fishermen wouldn’t give us exact numbers. 3”of slush under the snow. Ice is good but don’t take an ATV out there yet.
At 37 feet fishermen caught 15 Salmon”. Jens Gran from Polson said he had some good luck fishing LMR. Gran also said after the cold snap there probably wouldn’t be any slush on the lake.
