Western Montana Fishing Resources

Western Montana’s pristine, undisturbed waters provide incredible fishing opportunities for the serious angler and the casual fisherman. No matter where you choose to cast your line—be it a river, lake or blue-ribbon trout stream—we are here to help you navigate the waters of fishing laws, access sites, etiquette, techniques and other fishing information and resources.

Glacier Country is also home to seasoned fishing outfitters who are ready to help you land your trophy trout. For more information on fly-fishing outfitters, visit our fishing page.

Do note, Montana law allows the public to make recreational use of rivers and streams between the ordinary high-water marks. Anglers can wade in a stream, walk along the stream bank below the high-water mark, or float fish on any waters large enough to carry a boat. However, the law does not give recreationists the right to enter private lands bordering streams or to cross private lands to gain access to streams.
