Posted: September 3, 2021
Snagging season is about to open up on September 15th, We are FULLY stocked on snagging hooks and flagging for ALL of your salmon snagging needs!!!!!
Flathead Lake – Fishing has been very steady, pre spawn activities have started as the fish move into a bit shallower water. Cutbait and/or sausage links on a slip weight off the bottom has been working wonders!!!

Lake Mary Ronan – Perch bite has been very solid this year, less numbers but bigger perch. 18-24 seems to be the target depth and small crawdad plastics have been paying off! Rainbow trout have been caught while jigging for perch.

Echo Lake – Bass fishing has been good in the late afternoon/evenings. Top water has been fairly consistent this time of year. Hook up a Whopper Plopper to producing quality fish right before dark.

Loon Lake (Ferndale) – Powerbait remains the bait of choice for hungry Rainbow trout. Orange, Chartreuse and Pink Powerbait floating 18″ above the weight seems to be the ticket.

Swan River – Pike are moving around and hungry. Spinnerbaits have been a staple to the Northern Pike diet all season. Look for weed beds and/or cover as you are walking the “Wild Mile” for a good chance at a nice pike

Smith Lake – Eater size pike have been very aggressive, Perch colored spoons have been filling freezers up, Great spot to take the kids for some evening action

Foys Lake – Trout being caught using smaller sized Rapala’s either trolled or long casts from shore, Powerbait is also a very good option for shore fishing with the family.
