So you've heard of Montana's famous rivers and streams, but did you know we also have some of the most prolific lake fishing right out of our backdoor here in Southwest Montana? Whether it's hiking into an alpine lake somewhere in the middle of paradise, or fishing gulpers on Hebgen, or just poking a few grayling on Hyalite, we've got you covered. Lakes around our area offer fishing for large trout in pristine settings with relatively little fishing pressure. We float some lakes in drift boats, others require hike in and float tubes and are open for a short season, but all offer a much different experience than floating or wading a river. These aren't your privately held, pellet fed stocked trophy ponds, these are wild Montana lakes and reservoirs that hold populations of wild trout and feature sometimes prolific bug hatches. With the most experienced lake staff in Montana we can outfit you for your first lake fishing trip or take the seasoned veteran to some lakes they may never have fished before. All the necessary equipment (float tube, fins, etc.) is included in the cost of your trip.
Full Day Lake Trip Options
Full Day Lake Trips available on Hyalite, Hebgen, Quake, Cliff, Wade, Canyon Ferry, Ennis, Harrison, and many other lakes on request.
