Montana fly fishing

Fly Fishing the Flathead

Experience Montana fly fishing at its finest with Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and National Forests as breathtaking backdrops.  The Flathead River system of northwestern Montana offers memorable fishing opportunities. From sites of easy access to those of remote wilderness, the Flathead waters can provide diverse fishing experiences.  Three main branches, the North Fork, Middle Fork and South Fork, eventually come together to form the main stem of the Flathead River that flows into 28-mile-long Flathead lake.  Access to the three forks and the main Flathead is readily available in places, but to effectively fish the best of the Flathead, floating is suggested.  The hardest thing about fly fishing this part of northwestern Montana is keeping your eye on your fly and not the spectacular scenery.
