Calling all anglers and spouses of anglers who want their share of $81,100 in cash and prizes (and fish)! The annual Fall Mack Days fishing tournament on Flathead Lake, starts Friday, September 28th and runs through Nov. 11.
The purpose behind this tournament is not to promote Flathead Lake, Montana's jewell needs no help in this area. This is a joint effort by the tribes and the state to control the non-native predacious lake trout (Mackinaw) population in Flathead by fishing. The fishing contests are the key to letting anglers be the solution to the mackinaw problem.
Lake trout can be caught using spinning gear, flies, flat fish, spoons, jigs, and cut bait. Get the best fishing tips here.
Mac Days is sponsored by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and sanctioned by Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks. Get all the details on their official website.
Enjoy and good luck!
