Conditions At-a-glance

Our Report

Georgetown lake is finally open! (The South and East shore line is still closed until July 1st). The lake is also ice free and a little muddy. Look for fish in the shallows as they cruise the shore lines. 

Here are a few tips for fly fishing Georgetown Lake:

1. A balanced leech stripped or under an indicator is the best method right now. 
2. Small damsel patterns and chironomids are also effective.
3. Cover water and be methodical and you'll catch fish!

Here are a few fly suggestions:

1. Black balanced leech 

2. Damsel nymph

3. Maroon balanced leech

4. Ice cream cone head chironomid

Looking ahead:

This is one of the best times to be out on Georgetown! Get out there!

Nestled in the Pintlar Mountains near Philipsburg, Montana. Sight fishing far and fine is our goal with dry fly casts to 50'+ plus to cruising fish. When the fish are being snooty we'll pitch and strip olive buggers. If you’ve fished the flats for bonefish before, you get the picture.
