Fort Peck, Montana. Next year

If you are willing to make the drive, Fort Peck is a fantastic fishery. H(e)ll Creek Marina has 4 wheelers ( a must) and cabins for rent. Yo are allowed 6 lines per person w/ your spear counting as a line.

thats crazy that they let you do that.

Is there alot of people in the area that spear?

I think you can spear more than northerns too. I think I read that you can stick walleyes and lake trout in Montana.

What about Rainy Lk? That's a beautiful area and there are some big pike up there.

Next year, I'd like to spend a few days on Leech and try some lakes near Park Rapids.

We use to spend a fair amount of time at Kabetogama usually provided good action with the possiblity of huge pike, we always stayed at Kec's Kove but there area couple resorts up there that cater to the spearing crowed.

Biggest fish I EVER saw in a spearing hole was on Tom Cod Bay, have no idea what it was but one word described it, GIGANTIC! I was only about 13 years old when I saw that but it has been welded in my memory ever since. I speared a 40" pike on Lake of the Woods and that was not even close to what I saw on Kab.

Has anyone ever speared on Big Wolf lake right next to andrusia. I have caught some nice northerns on the lake in the summer. Is spearing even allowed on the lake?

You can't spear lake trout, but you can spear pike, walleye, sauger, burbot, and non-game fish. Spearing isn't nearly as popular in MT as in MN, with most people harvesting with tip-ups. A trip to H(e)ll Creek would definitely extend your spearing season after the MN spearing season closes. March is a real good time to go to H(e)ll Creek. You are allowed 6 lines per person and you need not be in immediate control if they are used as setlines and marked with your fishing liscense number and/or name and phone number. I have a lot of friends and family around that area that spend a lot of time on Fort Peck in the winter, they catch some real nice fish. It is kind of a long drive for you guys though. Just my $.02.

If you ever decide to come up here, watch the ticket prices in the fall. Every year Alaska Airlines runs PFD specials. For example, we will be flying to MT to visit in May, and we bought our tickets and scheduled our flights in October during the PFD specials. We got three round trip tickets for $590.00.

There are outfitters up here that offer darkhouse spearing packages, or if you did some research you could get a air taxi to drop you off someplace.

I was in alaska a couple years ago in july and it was the Best!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were between Anchorage and Keni the whole time. No bugs, 70's for highs and 50's for lows.

Great fishing for the Kings on the river and was within 30 yards a few times from the grizzlies!

It was a trip of a lifetime!

Darkhousefisher... I envy you!!

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
