POLSON — There are lots of perch at the city docks using fuzz bugs and nightcrawlers. Lake Mary Ronan salmon is improving as oxygen levels are getting better. By next week perch will bite as it will be warm enough and there will be optimal fishing as the water gets tepid. 

Flathead Lake Mack Days are over.  

Lake Trout are being caught at both Elmo and Big Arm areas and will be good until August except for those feeding on the little perch alongside the whitefish.

Bass are spawning in Kicking Horse and Ninepipe Reservoir. Pablo Reservoir has both bass and pike. Turtle Lake will be good until the first part of June, there’s bass now until mid-June.

East Bay has small mouth pike ... they are active all over Flathead Lake ... small mouth has exploded. 

At Dog Lake pike are biting good and perch will also, soon. 

Lone Pine and Crow Reservoir are excellent for brown rainbows and only in crow will you get small mouth bass.

Good Fishing.
