The Hanson Lakes are located on a large private ranch just south of White Sulphur Springs, MT. There are two lakes on the property, and each are filled with extremely hard fighting rainbow trout in the 18-22" class. These fish will make hard charging runs and are not afraid to put on an aerial show.
Both lakes are large enough to launch a drift boat in, and that is our preferred method of fishing these lakes. Subsurface fishing is very consistent by slow stripping streamers, leeches, and damselfly patterns. The lakes see some nice hatches and there is good dry fly action early in the summer. We often combine a morning of fishing the lakes with an afternoon of stream fishing in the area on other ranches.
