A week off where should I go
« on: Feb 12, 2024, 07:23 AM »
Thinking about taking a road trip doing some ice fishing unfortunately I'll be fishing alone so not sure how far I want to go might just stick around the Kalispell area maybe head down to Cascade Lake would like to hit Fort Peck if I could find others to go with or even Cascade

Unless you're dead set on only hitting one lake, you could make a "tour" out of it.  Head over by Great Falls and have the ability to hit a few lakes all within an hour or so drive from town? Frances, Pishkun, Bynum, Tiber, Nelson are all relatively close to Great Falls.

If you hit any places near me, I also got that week off, maybe I'll meet you somewhere.

I live in MT, so when I ain't huntin, I'm fishin!
Boy the way Glenn Miller played
Songs that made the hit parade.
Guys like us we had it made,
Those were the days.

And you knew who you were then,
Girls were girls and men were men,
Mister we could use a man
Like Herbert Hoover again.

Didn't need no welfare state,
Everybody pulled his weight.
Gee our old LaSalle ran great.
Those were the days

Old IS member "i c" and I did that several years ago. We fished up and down the Front, hittin 2 lakes a day. It was a blast.

I've kicked that idea around,  they also thought about just driving down to Cascade because I can rent a sled down there I don't have transportation on the ice and if I'm going to take that much time I want to be able to get around on the lake and not just be driving a sled by walking

Not sure what rental rates are but you could also rent a sled elsewhere and tow it to any of the lakes if you wanted to and have means of hauling it?

No  I haven't figured out where I'm going,  Tiber would be fun ,but I've never been and without transportation to get around on the ice I might just stay local I know where to catch fish here within walking distance
