Outdoors Show Films On Fort Peck Reservoir

Jason Mitchell of the outdoor program Jason Mitchell Outdoors recently filmed a fishing segment on Fort Peck Reservoir in eastern Montana. The show will highlight the trophy walleye fishing for which Fort Peck is famous. "For trophy walleyes, Fort Peck remains one of the top destinations in the country and one of the best places I can think of for walleyes that are over 30 inches," explained Mitchell.  Mitchell fished with Glasgow angler Ken Schmidt. "Ken and I grew up fishing together and actually used to fish some tournaments together so we go back a long ways," added Mitchell.  The anglers worked deep main lake structure with bottom bouncers and live bait rigs in 20 to 28 feet of water.  Several giant walleyes were landed on camera.
