Ice fishing

Fishing doesn't end when winter comes to Montana. It continues past ice-up on Fort Peck at Hell Creek. It just changes a bit.

Rather than boats and motors and hitting the waves, winter action on Fort Peck involves ice shacks, northern spears and tip-ups for walleyes and lake trout.

Many fishermen bring their own equipment to Hell Creek, but for those who either don't have it or don't want to bring it, we offer five ice shacks for rental during the winter. These spearing shacks rent for $45 per day.

If you don't have a pike spear, we sell or rent those, too, along with spearing decoys -- lures without hooks that you lower below the ice to bring the fish within spearing range.

Perhaps the most valuable thing about Hell Creek Marina in winter, however, is that it's a good base of operations open with meals, rooms, bait and tackle.

We also have up-to-date advice and information on what part of the lake is best for fishing and any hazards that anglers might find when they head out into the white-open-spaces of Fort Peck in winter.
