Summer is Here!

The weather is very hot, and the fishing is good. For those of you who heard the rumor, yes it is true, it is time for Tammy and Lonny to retire and to do that we are offering our business up for sale! We have had this great business for 18 years and have loved getting to know all in this vally and all the tourists too. We are hoping someone with the love of the great outdoors will come along and take over this great little gem of a store out here in Northwest Montana. Anyone that is interested please contact me, {Tammy} and I will get back to you with details. We are planning on staying in this area that we love dearly, but want to do more playing now. Now back to the current conditions, Out on Lake Kookanusa the kookanee are biting on wedding rings topped off with a maggot or shoepeg corn, Depending on the sunshine as to what color to use. Pink is always good and chartreuse follows in 2nd place. the kookanee are runnig about 45 feet down and the size is bigger then last year most of them are around 12 inched with a few bigger ones every now and then. Makes great size for smoking and canning. If you get a bull trout catch card from Fish and Game you can keep one bull trout this year. Its free so get one and harvest a bigone, you have to get the catch card down at a regional office. We did see alot of really nice northern pike caught this year, they are my favorite fish to catch and to eat also. Enjoy the great outdoors when ever you get the opportunity..

Thanks for helping us to survive in Eureka for 18 years! A special thank you to all those who support us the whole year through by spending your money at our store. We really appreciate it! Thanks alot!

Fishing News

The water levels on the tobacco river and grave creek are a little above normal but this year our runoff was not to high. The watervis already clearing up and fishable in most areas.Snagging opens on Sept 15, This date is the same every year so you can make plans to get out there and do some snagging.but before that try fishing them in the tobacco river with something red, they fight really well just before spawning. Stop by or call and I'll let you know the latest news on where the fish are biting the best.

Have a Great Season


We are looking forward to spending alot of time out doors this year enjoying all there is to do around here, If you need help with finding a good trail to hike or ride horse on give me a call and I will help you figure out which one would be good for you. We have a couple young grizzlies down along the river walk and in the tobacco river area, be aware they are out there and be careful. always be bear aware when you are out enjoying the great outdoors. I carry Bear spray at Northwest Sports so be sure to pick some up before heading out to play. I have a number of rock climbers stop by here, for those of you headed out to stone hill I do carry the Stone Hill rock climbers guide.
