Glacier Country Outdoors – Fishing Tips & Techniques

Technique for Fishing the Spring Spawn

Every spring here in Glacier Country around the end of March, the ice begins to recede from the Blackfeet Reservation lakes. This is a signal for all giant rainbows to move in along the shore and begin the ritual spring spawn or false spawn, since they aren’t able to actually reproduce.

It’s an excellent opportunity to catch a fish of a lifetime.

Here is a technique we us to entice these giants to bite, not only during the spring spawn, but throughout the summer months.
