What to Use? Trout Fishing Suggestions for Montana Lakes

My good friends Mark Ward and Dale Moore went to Holter Reservoir near Helena this week and landed some awesome trout!

And while they were in a boat trolling, these lures of choice could be effective casting from shore as well, in case you’re wondering what to offer the trout this time of year. This is a look at their Big 5, trolling at about two miles per hour — a fairly quick pace, which helped keep the lures in depths of 10-12 feet.

Left to right, the five most successful lures were a Sven Viking Spoon (teal/silver/speckled combo), silver/black minnow Viking Spoon, brown trout Rapala “Scat” lure (its contours better mimic a wounded bait fish), a gold/black Rapala J-7 and a fire tiger Syclops lure.

The guys picked up some nice trout for their efforts and wanted me to pass along some helpful hints that may help you land a few. Of course, knowing these guys, they probably just got lucky! :-)  (Oops, I bet I just lost a chance to be invited next time)
