This week on the Montana Outdoor Podcast, Downrigger and The Captain have FWP Fisheries Biologist for Region 4, Adam Strainer back to talk all about the fish in Holter Reservoir. As usual Adam did not disappoint. He delivered all kinds of great information. The fellas started their discussion about a picture that Adam had recently sent to The Captain and Downrigger. It was a picture of Adam and his son holding a great looking Kokanee Salmon that they had just caught in Holter Reservoir. The Captain and Downrigger were surprised since normally you just don’t see many Kokanees being caught out of Holter anymore. Oh, but that has changed, and Adam tells all about it, including where and when you can find them and even gives some info on what you might want to use to catch them! So did the FWP just stock a bunch of Kokanee in there? Nope! So why the increase in great looking Kokanee in Holter? Click here to listen to the podcast to hear all about it.
