In the quest for good small stream fishing in Glacier National Park, I always try to make Cut Bank Creek seem better fishing than it is. There is something pleasurable about fishing long and hard for a few 8- to 10-inch brook trout. I have been skunked half the times I have fished it, but the other half I have stepped off the trail, thrown in a bitch creek nymph, and taken a fish immediately. The sections up from the Cut Bank Campground offer challenging fishing for cagey brook trout that stack up under the willows in the deep holes. They are hard to catch in midday, and you should get out in the morning if you can. Try to get at the fish before they set up under the banks for the day. Fish only the deep holes and avoid the runs. Electroshocking studies in the past indicated that the fish are there but are concentrated in the deep holes under the willow overgrown banks.
