Montana has excellent fishing opportunities pretty much all across
the state. It is not known as a prolific bass fishing state due
to relatively short growing seasons and typically cold water. That
said, there are still plenty of places in MT fo fish for and catch
some very nice bass. Private ponds, rivers and small lakes may
contain bass but the larger populations of bass are harbored in
some of the major lakes in the state. The lakes with a healthy
population of bass include Bighorn Lake, Bull Lake, Canyon Ferry
Lake, Flathead Lake, Fort Peck Lake, Hauser Lake, Holter Lake,
Lake Helena, Lake Koocanusa, Nelson Reservoir, Placid Lake and
The Montana state record largemouth bass was caught from Many
Lakes. For the state record smallmouth bass there is a tie, one came
from Fort Peck Reservoir and the other from the Flathead River.
Bass are aggressive feeders and agile enough to chase down and catch most of their favorite foods. They are most easily caught during a feeding spree but can also be enticed into striking an anglers bait for reasons other than hunger. They are predatory by nature and at times will strike at anything that enters their domain. If it moves and they can get it into their large mouth, bass will attempt to eat it.
