Hidden away in the far northwest corner of Montana, the Kootenai National Forest supports some of Montana's finest fishing opportunities. Whatever your preference, the Kootenai probably has what you are looking for. Anglers can match the hatch on some of the State's finest trout water or cast to largemouth and smallmouth bass and other warm-water game fish. When it comes to fishing opportunities the Kootenai National Forest really does have it all.

Most of our developed campgrounds are located adjacent to fishable streams and lakes and many of our trails lead to high mountain lakes. So, pack your fishing gear the next time you visit us.

Be sure to check with Montana Fish and Game for information about licenses and regulations before tossing a line into the water.
