Here’s the latest from Snappy’s Sport Senter in Kalispell:
Foys Lake – Kokanee and Trout being caught while trolling wedding rings tipped with maggots. The right side of the boat launch off of the rock shelves seem to be one of the better producing areas on the lake.

Blanchard Lake – Crappie bite has been on FIRE! Small white plastics under a slip bobber rig has been producing some big numbers. Bass and Pike are still being caught using topwater in the lily pads.

Lower Stillwater – Perch fishing has been steady, focus on the edges of weed beds and gravel flats, small tungsten jigs tipped with a micro plastic are always on the menu.

Dickey Lake – Kokanee are schooling up and ready for the smoker, Once the school is located Hali’s have been an absolute killer on the early fall kokanee bites

Echo Lake – Smallmouth fishing continues to improve as the temps cool down. Tube and drop shot season is here! Freshly restocked on all the plastics you will need to bring big smallies to the boat.

Flathead Lake – Lake trout are on the move, smelt off of the bottom in the 40-60 foot of water range is a great way to located feeding Lakers before the move up into spawn.

Bootjack Lake – Rainbow trout have been very active, smaller sized Mepp’s spinners have been doing well. Gold seems to be the color of choice.

Swan River – Pike fishing is getting hot!! Spinner baits thrown near weed beds and across laid down logs seem to be the ticket to get the bigger fish to react.
