All of Montana’s other lakes and reservoirs, natural or man-made, pale in comparison to western Montana’s famed Flathead Lake, called by many the “jewel of the Northwest.” It is the largest natural freshwater lake in the western United States, with over 200 square miles (or 125,250 acres) of surface area and 185 miles of shoreline. Flathead is renowned for lake trout and lake whitefish fishing; as well as for many other water-based recreational activities such as sailing, power boating, water-skiing, and swimming. Fishing at Flathead Lake offers trolling, bank-fishing, still-fishing, bait and lure fishing, but not much fly fishing, choice of trout, whitefish, largemouth bass, northern pike, and perch.
