Flathead River Fishing Report

Information
The Flathead River represents the combined flow of hundreds of headwater creeks funneled from the glacial cirques of Glacier National Park and other wild places within the U.S. and Canada. This cold, clear water flows into the North, South and Middle forks of the Flathead, which merge together near Columbia Falls to begin a southward journey. Portions of the upper mainstem Flathead River are classified as 'Recreational' within the Wild and Scenic River Classification system.


About 20 miles into its journey, after flowing down the gentle, south-sloping gradient of the Flathead Basin floor, the river empties into Flathead Lake. The lower mainstem Flathead River drains from the southwest corner of the lake and draws waters from an arid valley basin throughout its 75-mile course. The Flathead River finally empties into the Clark Fork River at Paradise.
 

The Flathead River System offers hundreds of miles of pristine waterways, while Flathead Lake is a scenic and recreational mecca. A diversity of fish and wildlife complement the land and water resources, and contribute to both the natural and cultural values of the Flathead Basin environment.

Montana fly fishing in the Bob Marshall Wilderness is an opportunity to get a long way from anywhere, enjoy the company of your friends, and fly fish the extraordinary headwaters of ... moreMontana. Fishing trips range from 5 to 7 days and may stay in one camp location or move about several camps. 

The wilderness fly fishing trips take you some of the purest, most exciting fly fishing with exceptionally beautiful country as the backdrop. On a hot summer day fly fishermen can catch 60 fish a day and rarely see anyone else on the river. There are many excellent fly fishing rivers in Montana, and remote wilderness fly fishing is truly unique and exhilarating.

Comfortable camping, safe horseback riding, outstanding wild river fishing, and quality time with friends and family are the hallmarks of a fishing trip adventure with A Lazy H.

For the non-fishermen in your group, we offer horseback rides to nearby lookouts and mountain meadows filled with wildflowers, or hikes to nearby mountain peaks. Everyone can regroup at the end of the day for recollection of another great day.
