Bass still fat, plentiful at Emiquon

November 27, 2009 at 06:07 AM

In late October the Department of Natural Resources did population surveys of bass at the Emiquon Preserve near Havana. As expected, they found plenty of bass. Plenty of fat bass like the one held above by biologist Ken Russell, which is our latest entry in Flathead’s Picture of the Week.

They aren’t the only ones who have surveyed the lake with success. Trivoli bass angler Ron Boyer says fishing bass been fantastic this fall—better even than the 100-fish-per-angler days of the summer.

Makes you wonder what next spring will be like out there, doesn’t it?

Ponder that as you admire this wide shot of Emiquon.
