Montana Pike Fishing Report – October 3rd, 2017
The Fall Montana pike season is finally upon us. The weather is perfect, the water is cooling and the fish are hungry. So now is certainly the time. This time last year, we were still looking at temps in the 80’s and a bunch of fish swimming around in 20+ feet of water. But the cooler temps, rain and snow have cooled our favorite pike spots off perfectly and they are all fishing well.
Fish are being found very shallow in the morning and evening hours, which is perfect for us. On the darker/cloudier days, these fish will remain shallow loading up on baitfish. On the brighter days, you can expect the fish to slide out to specific hiding spots during the middle of the day. They are still easily reachable with a fly, but you need to know where to look for them.
Larger flies, crazy colors and even a few topwater flies are the jam for Montana pike right now. Those willing to fish early and late will be best rewarded. The Fall is the season to get the big girls, loading up on calories before winter. So now is the time to get out there.
