Weekly Fort Peck Salmon Report
By angelamontana

Posted: August 5, 2022

The Captain has been fishing Fort Peck since Sunday with Downrigger Dale. They had Elliot Essling in the boat Sunday, and they caught 5 small salmon.  Everyday, Rigger and the Captain caught salmon but nothing bigger than 6 pounds.

Then, Thursday, Gary Rueb jumped in the boat with the Captain. They hooked a big salmon, but it came unbuttoned after taking three runs. (The big one got away) Some big ones are being caught while you wade through the smaller salmon.

Squid and Brads cut bait are working the best for the Captain.  They were fishing in 90-100 feet of water.

Super awesome–keep it up!
