Seeley Lake


  • Lake
Seeley Lake is a 1,025-acre glacially-formed lake. It is stocked several times each year with rainbow trout, some weighing up to 15 pounds. The lake is also very popular among bass fishermen and boasts one of the finest bass fisheries in western Montana. Other fish species include kokanee salmon, bull trout, whitefish, perch and bluegills. Seeley Lake is one of a half dozen lakes in the Clearwater Valley known as the 'Chain of Lakes,' through which the Clearwater River flows. From north to south these lakes are: Rainy Lake, Lake Alva, Lake Inez, Seeley Lake and Salmon Lake. These lakes are easily accessible from Highway 83 and most have modern, developed campgrounds nearby. There are three Forest Service campgrounds on Seeley Lake with swimming areas; Seeley Lake Campground, River Point Campground and Big Larch Campground.
