Fishing in Montana is a dream come true. Wade into crystal clear lakes or pebble-filled trout streams. Cast your line in the Paradise Valley or on Flathead Lake, only two of many prized locations for anglers in Big Sky Country. While waiting for your big catch, take a moment to see the mountains cascade around you or catch a glimpse of Montana wildlife. It truly is a scene out of "A River Runs Through It."
