Flathead Ice Fishing
Sheltered bays freeze most years and the entire lake freezes about every 10 years. Be extremely careful about ice conditions. Generally use vertical jigging techniques in 30′-200′ of water although you can catch small fish in 10′ or less water. Somers Bay, (Somers) Hatchery Bay, Big Arm Bay, and Polson Bay are dependable spots. If the entire lake freezes over try Yellow Bay Point, Skidoo Bay, and Angel Point-Conrad Point, but be careful: conditions can change daily.
