Fishing Report Updated July 1, 2022

This Montana private lake fishing report is valid from July 1 through August.

Hot, bright, windy weather has put a damper on private lake fishing and it is unlikely to improve much again until the first taste of fall. If you get a calm, slightly cooler day with clouds, look for damselfly and Callibaetis hatches from early morning until the wind starts howling or about 2:00PM, whichever comes first. Burns Lake will probably fish better than others.

Our next private lake report will drop in late August when some lakes start cooling off and fishing well.
