Fishing


Fishing

It wouldn't be a trip to Missoula, or Montana, without a fishing adventure. We've all seen the fly fishing movie, A River Runs Through It, right? Fishing is absolutely central to this community.

While we can't serve up Brad Pitt as your personal guide, we can offer an impressive number of fishing outfitters ready to show you the ropes. For these guides, fishing is a passion. It's a way of life.

With three rivers to choose from - the Blackfoot, Bitterroot, and the Clark Fork of the Columbia - as well as Rock Creek, famous for its blue ribbon fishing, you have an almost endless selection of stretches to explore. The angling is so good here, that Forbes Magazine named Missoula one of North America's top ten trout fishing towns.

If lake fishing is more your speed, you'll find plenty of options here as well. Flathead Lake, Frenchtown Pond State Park, Georgetown Lake, Placid Lake State Park, Seeley Lake and Salmon Lake State Park all welcome you to fish their waters.

Fishing Licenses

Fishing licenses are available through Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks.
