Fishing in & around Glacier National Park

No license is necessary to fish in any of Glacier National Park’s 1,606 miles of streams and 253 snow-fed lakes. This is the only place in the nation where fishermen can find as many as 22 kinds of fish, including 6 species of trout. There are a variety of fishing guides available for sale in the Gift Shop and always check in with a park ranger to learn about any new regulations.
 
Fishing opportunities are abound outside the Park. Bordering watersheds offer competitive fishing for the serious angler and easily accessible water for the causal fisherman. All three forks of beautiful Flathead River provide favorite fishing holes. From wild Rainbow Trout to Arctic Grayling or Lake Whitefish, you decide what type of fish you want to catch and our travel experts can help you find the best locales to reel in the beast.

Fishing trips are also available on Flathead and Whitefish Lakes. On the lakes, you can fish Bull Trout, Rainbow Trout, Northern Pike and Whitefish. Some Lake Trout in Whitefish and Flathead Lakes can often exceed twenty pounds!
