The big news this week is the ice is gone at Fort Peck Reservoir.

In the dam area anglers reeled in some lake trout, walleye, northern pike and smallmouth bass. Some were also catching northern pike and catfish from the shore at Crooked Creek.

While the ice is also out at Nelson Reservoir, other reservoirs and lakes in the region were still partially frozen as of Monday, such as Cooney Reservoir and Deadman’s Basin.

If you are itching to fish and enjoy action on rivers now is the time to go; otherwise runoff will be kicking into high gear soon.

Casey Schantz of Miles City caught this 20-pound lake trout earlier this month while fishing at Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Wyoming.
