Just found your question, Lake McDonald had Trout Mackinaw they called them back in 1985 when I fished there.

Wisperer,

You need to fish Hebgen Lake for the Browns. Take or rent a boat and fish the cruisers in the late evening in the cove where Rainbow Creek flows into the lake. This is down near thee dam and opposite the road. There is lots of under water vegetation so don't let em sound on ya, they will break you off every time.

It has been awhile but my guess is that the fish are still there. Best if you have a partner and take turns with the oars in order to move quietly to intercept the fish. You will see them feeding, gently sipping midge and caddis and you have to anticipate the next rise and have a fly there. It can be nerve racking but when you hook into a ten pounder or better you will be hooked yourself.

This is far from traditional fly casting but if I lived where you do I would be a fixture there when I wanted BIG fish.

Let me know what you think or if you've already done this.

Ard
