About the Book

This book is a third volume, containing information on 100 additional lakes in Flathead, Lake, Lincoln, Missoula, Powell and Sanders counties of northwest Montana. They range from lowland lakes to alpine lakes. Many can be driven to, while many others require a hike.

Most fishing guides offer very limited information on a large number of lakes, most of which their authors have never been near. This book provides detailed information on the lake and surrounding area, as well as directions and fishing tips. All lakes included in this book have been personally visited, photographed, and in most cases fished by the author.

The emphasis is on the fisherman’s perspective, but trail and camping information is equally applicable to those who only wish to hike and camp.

This volume, with the first two, brings the total number of lakes covered in Northwest Montana to 300. Volume 2 had a lot of hike-in lakes, and Volume 3 has even more. There are additional hikes in the Yaak area, the Jewel Basin, the Ten Lakes area near Eureka, and many more in Mineral and Missoula Counties.

Many of the lakes in this volume are found in the Lolo, Flathead, Kootenai and Kaniksu National Forests. There are several hikes into lakes in the Mission Mountains Wilderness, and for the first time some lakes in the western portion of Glacier National Park are included.

The areas covered in this volume are some of the most scenic in Montana, and also provide photographic opportunities for wildlife including bear (black and grizzly), cougar, wolves, mountain goats, moose, and elk.

The book is separated into chapters for each lake. A photograph of the lake is included at the beginning of each chapter.
