Pishkun Reservoir is a 1500 acre reservoir that sits along the Rocky
Mountain Front. It is quite scenic and relatively easy to get to. Although
only a scattering of trees are found around the lake, the mountains to
the west tower above the landscpae, providing a beautiful backdrop for
any fishing party.
Fish species include rainbow trout, northern pike and yellow perch.
An excellent fishing access site exists on the lake, allowing for easy
boat access. Due to the often VERY windy conditions that can occur on
the lake, a float
tube is probably not the best method of fishing this large reservoir
except on those rare calm days or early in the mornings/late in the evenings.
Instead, consider either a hard shell motorboat or an inflatable
kayak. A canoe also
will work well if more than one person will be in it (rowing a canoe
by oneself against a forty miles-per-hour wind is not fun or easy).
to the reservoir is excellent. Outside of the designated fishing access
site, a fisherman can frequently hop off one of the many roads that
ring the reservoir and fish right from the bank. While conditions can
be frequently windy, a small inflatable kayak or canoe can also work
well for fishing on the lake.
To get to Pishkun Reservoir, go to the town of Choteau and follow
Highway 287 just south of town. Then, just follow the fishing access
signs to get to the reservoir, which lies about fifteen miles away
off a decent dirt road.
